Corey Saffold is the Director of Crisis Management/School Safety and Security for the Verona Area School District (VASD) in Verona, Wisconsin. Saffold currently sits on the Office of School Safety Advisory Committee at the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ). As part of this committee, Saffold is one of many that advises the Office of School Safety on best practices for Active Shootings and Emergency Preparedness for Wisconsin schools. Saffold created CS Consulting in 2018 after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Prior to his role with the VASD, Saffold served as a City of Madison Police Officer for a decade. During that time, he also served as a school resource officer, gaining most of his training and experience in emergency preparedness and active shootings. Saffold trained in Dallas, Texas, with the founder and creator of ALICE and was one of the first police officers in Madison to introduce this concept to the Madison Metropolitan School District. Understanding disparities and the complex nature of K-12 education, Saffold also successfully created and implemented restorative programs that reduced citations, arrests, and overall police involvement within the school. Concurrently, Saffold served as an advisor for the Black Student Union, where he facilitated multiple initiatives that contributed to the successful matriculation of diverse students through high school and on to higher education.
In 2020-22, Governor Evers appointed Saffold to the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents, where he was an active member advocating for access to education. During his term, Saffold chaired the Student Disciplinary and Appeals Committee and served on the Capital Planning and Budget Committee and the Business Finance Committee.
In 2016, Saffold became a Wisconsin Humanities Council Speakers Bureau member. There, he utilized his professional expertise to advise a diverse range of constituents throughout the state of Wisconsin on the challenges and opportunities of policing in today’s society.
Throughout Saffold’s professional career, he has continued to be a thought leader in designing, facilitating, and implementing innovative policies and strategies to keep schools, businesses, and places of faith safe.
