Valley View School District 365U School Safety Coordinator Leroy Brown has been named to two major task forces charged with examining school safety and security.

The Will County Regional Office of Education appointed Brown to the Illinois State Board of Education Illinois State School Task Force which will help schools across the state examine and implement comprehensive security plans.

The former head of security for the Sears Tower has also been asked to serve on the leadership team for the Risk Management Training and Assessment Program of the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security, which is based in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

“The expectation is that leadership team members will return to their respective school districts and coordinate the development of a sports/after-school event security risk management system,” said Lou Marciani, Director of the NCS4 group.

Brown joined the VVSD staff in 2006 as a security team member at Bolingbrook High School. Within several months, he became School Safety Coordinator.

Prior to coming to the district, he worked for Sears for 33 years, initially as a retail security director and later as Lead Security Officer for the Sears Tower where he led the team that developed the security plan for what was, at the time, the world’s tallest building. He also was a Cook County Sheriff’s Deputy for five years.
