Background
The National School Safety Center (NSSC) was founded in 1984 by Presidential mandate from Ronald Reagan as a joint partnership between the Departments of Justice and Education and Pepperdine University. The mission of the National School Safety Center was to promote a continued exchange of information related to school crime and violence prevention through a wide array of resources in order to assist school boards, educators, law enforcers and the public to maintain schools as safe, secure and tranquil places of learning. This was achieved through, among other activities, putting on professional conferences, providing training sessions and materials to educators, and publishing a wide array of printed materials and educational films. In 1999, the NSSC became an independent non-profit organization, ending their affiliation with Pepperdine University but continuing to provide the same services to the public.
