About the DeAngelis Center:
The Frank DeAngelis Center for Community Safety was created to support law enforcement and school safety training and tactics for mass casualty tragedies. As the District of Columbine High School and Deer Creek Middle School, Jeffco Schools knows firsthand the importance of preparedness and response to critical events. The Center is a place where law enforcement and school safety officials can have the difficult conversations, test tactics, share lessons learned; both failures and successes. It is the opportunity for realistic training in a school environment.
The DeAngelis Center, for more than 50 years, was Martensen elementary school in Wheat Ridge Colorado; a place of education for thousands of students. Renamed the Frank DeAngelis Center for Community Safety for our retired Columbine High School Principal in April of 2017, the DeAngelis Center is still a place of education; the students of today are first responders that include law enforcement and fire departments, school safety and victim advocates. From patrol and K9 to school resource officers and SWAT, Bomb squads and rescue task force members and crime scene investigators all train at the Center.
In March of 2019, the DeAngelis Center introduced state of the art video, audio, scent and interactive active shooter simulator technology designed to enhance the realistic training experience.
The Jeffco DeAngelis Foundation offers a variety of trainings and services supporting school and community safety. We invite you to browse our website and contact us with questions!
