Safe-Ed. LLC provides professional security and staffing services to public and private school districts. It is Safe-Ed.’s mission to help school districts provide a “safe and secure learning environment” for it’s students, staff, and visitors. 

Owner, Co-Founder, and CFO Steve Brandimore is a retired 25-year police veteran, working many of those years as a School Resource Officer and Juvenile Investigator. President, Co-Founder, and COO George Zielinski is a 36-year police veteran, with many years supervising and investigating juvenile-related cases and overseeing School Resource Officers. Together they recognized a need for schools to have a full time security-centered staff that were more than just hall monitors. This staff would possess years of previous law enforcement experience, providing a resource far beyond any security guard company. With many school districts unable to afford paying for full-time police officers assigned to their schools, this experienced staff can fill the void and provide many of the same benefits at a far lesser cost.

In 2011, Safe-Ed. LLC was formed and was contracted by the Troy School District to staff their two main high schools. Since then in addition to Troy, Safe-Ed. successfully provides professional security services to the Rochester Community Schools, Lake Orion Community Schools, Royal Oak Schools, Romeo Community Schools, Redford Union School District, and Regina High School. Our staff take pride in becoming invested in the schools they work in, becoming an integral part of the staff and administration.

In addition to our core security offerings, Safe-Ed. extends its services to include Dog Wellness Programs. These programs bring therapy dogs to schools and businesses, offering a range of benefits such as reducing stress, improving mental health, and fostering a positive environment for learning or work.

Safe-Ed. also provides cost-effective staffing services, saving school districts money by reducing legacy costs associated with non-staff coaches and custodial/maintenance personnel. We currently provide staffing services for the Troy School District, Brighton Area Schools, Livonia Public Schools, Lamphere Schools, and Pinckney Community Schools.

Safe-Ed. contracts with GCN Training and other resources to provide in-person and video-based training on a variety of topics specific to schools, students, and parents, as well as general workplace policies. Further, Safe-Ed. conducts annual in-house training sessions covering our own company policies and procedures, as well as scenario-based training for all employees. 

Safe-Ed. believes we have the ideal solution and attractive alternative for our school districts. We are confident we can work out a complete, yet cost-effective security or staffing solution for your needs.
