Appropriate for Middle School through Transition-aged Students.
BE SAFE is a video-modeling curriculum for teens and young adults that utilizes evidence-based practices. It provides each student with the appropriate skills necessary to safely and appropriately respond to community officers and professionals, increasing their safety, community integration, and independence. BE SAFE includes comprehensive lesson plans that detail appropriate behaviors when interacting with police officers and other first responders. These lessons teach teens and young adults how to understand and obey commands from law enforcement. BE SAFE also teaches teens and young adults about laws and their rights, such as the right to remain silent. The data collection tool allows teachers to monitor the students’ acquisition of these vital safety skills.
