Regarded as a leading subject matter expert on school safety, Susan Payne has
a career spanning over three decades. She is a decorated law enforcement
veteran who began her career with the Colorado Springs Police Department
where she worked undercover for multiple crime units. Susan has the
distinction of also being the Colorado Department of Public Safety’s first
Special Agent dedicated specifically to school safety.
The U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S.
Secret Service all recognize Susan as a subject matter expert in school
safety and prevention strategies. In addition to her school safety work,
Susan is recognized throughout North America for her expertise in crisis
management and recovery response. Because of this, Susan is often requested
to help other States and communities navigate the aftermath of a trauma. Her
most recent work included assisting the Florida Attorney General’s efforts
following the February 14, 2018 shootings at a high school in Parkland, FL.
A wife and mother of three children, Colorado native Susan Payne is also the
Founder of Safe2Tell™, a prevention initiative developed as a response to the
1999 Columbine tragedy in Littleton, Colorado. Susan currently serves in dual
roles as the Executive Director for Safe2Tell Colorado and as the Director of
Safe Schools under the Colorado Department of Law. Since 2004, over 40,000
reports have been received by Safe2Tell, resulting in calculable tragedies
being thwarted and hundreds of lives being saved! Second to none, the proven
success of the Safe2Tell program model has made it a national standard that
other States, along with Susan’s guidance, are now replicating.
Our meetings are open to organizations
and individuals who are interested in
stopping Modern Day Slavery, especially
in our community. We are a 501 C 3 organization as recognized by the IRS.
