School Safety Coordinators play a critical role in helping to establish and maintain a culture of school safety compliance for educators and school staff.  As a result, the Arkansas School Safety Commission has recommended as a best practice that all school districts must have a school safety coordinator on each campus, who is a part of the district school safety security team.  The School Safety Coordinator conducts security audits, reviews emergency operation plans, and coordinates with law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical services during a campus event. The  Coordinator is also responsible for tornado, fire, and earthquake lockdown drills.
