World-renowned author will also speak on school violence during panel session with other K-12 school experts earlier that day at leading security conference

LOUISVILLE, Colo., March 17, 2014 – Inovonics, a leading provider of enterprise life safety and specialized commercial wireless systems, today announced that distinguished author and thought leader, Barbara Coloroso, will hold a book signing at Inovonics’ booth (#16109) during ISC West 2014 Las Vegas, Nev., for her bestseller, “The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander: From Preschool to High School--How Parents and Teachers Can Help Break the Cycle.” The book signing for her bestselling book will take place on Wednesday, April 2 from 2 to 3 p.m. at Inovonics’ booth on the ISC West 2014 trade show floor and will include refreshments.

Coloroso also is scheduled to participate as a panelist earlier that day on the “Beyond School Shootings: Everyday Violence in K-12 Schools and Methods for Prevention” panel presentation – as part of ISC West’s series of Education security tracks – with several other school safety and security experts on K-12 school violence. The hour-long panel begins at 11:15 a.m. PST.

“I appreciate the support Inovonics is giving me to help spread the word about concerns regarding youth violence in our schools,” said Coloroso. “Bringing these issues to the forefront of what is needed in today’s security systems is critical to the well-being of our children. Educating people on the issues and solutions is crucial to overcoming them.”

The ISC West panel is an ideal platform for sharing proven methodologies for approaching youth violence and recognizing bullying in K-12 environments,” said Coloroso. “Security dealers and integrators need to understand the state of school violence and the most effective methods for creating a secure education environment. I look forward to contributing a unique perspective on psychological and social factors that security professionals must understand before implementing people protection systems and sharing those insights during the panel and book signing.”

In addition to being a best-selling author, Coloroso is a public speaker and consultant on parenting, teaching, school discipline, positive school climate, bullying, grieving, non-violent conflict resolution and restorative justice. She has appeared on numerous television programs and has been featured in many top national and international publications. During the Inovonics panel presentation, Coloroso will share her successful approaches to school violence prevention.

“Working together with experts, such as Barbara, Inovonics hopes to bring awareness and education to the incredibly important conversation on school violence,” said Don Commare, VP Marketing, Inovonics. “Barbara Coloroso is among the elite thought leaders on this topic and brings invaluable knowledge to ISC West. Since the release of our core EMD tenets, Inovonics has made significant strides in changing the way people protection is viewed in highly mobile, commercial settings, such as K-12 schools. Together we can offer attendees education, new information and unique perspectives on school security.”
