I first met today’s guest, Bobby Kipper, when he brought his film, Bully Fighters, to Arizona schools a couple of years back.
We served on a panel together discussing this issue and his Green Zone program. You’ll find out today what that program is and many others that Bobby has developed.
Bobby’s journey began with a 26-year career in the Newport News, Virginia Police Department. He went on to serve as the Director of the Gang Reduction Program for the Virginia Attorney General.
Bobby founded the National Center for Prevention of Community Violence. He won the FBI’s Director’s award for fighting crime.
With four decades of experience fighting crime and implementing programs, he has some strong opinions on keeping schools and communities safe, Education on bullying, and public safety. He’ll talk about why the “De-fund the police” movement is misguided.
