Richmond Public Schools Department of Safety and Security

Thank you for visiting the Richmond Public Schools’ Department of Safety and Security. Richmond Public Schools is dedicated to providing the highest quality academic curriculum and learning environment to all students. The achievement of this goal depends heavily on maintaining a safe and nurturing environment within our schools. Our highly trained security staff serves as a source of information, assistance and guidance to students, parents, teachers, and staff as well as a link to support services within the community. Security specialists interact daily with our students, enforce school policy, serve as mentors, and function as role models.

We believe safety directly impacts the effective learning environment that our district supports. It is our goal to maintain an environment that embraces success allowing students to achieve. We reach this goal by building strong relationships, promoting positive student behavior in and out of schools, working closely with the community, local law enforcement and emergency management officials. School safety is everyone’s responsibility!
