Safety at Bergen Arts & Science Charter School

Safety Coordinator

With over 30 years of public safety experience, Leo P. McGuire has remained on the forefront of innovation, technology, and mentoring others to realize their potential.

Whether it was serving as a military policeman in the U.S. Army, as a police officer and supervisor in a New Jersey municipality, or leading Bergen County’s largest law enforcement agency as Sheriff, he maintained a balance between effective leadership and providing the critical safety services our citizens expect and desire.

Selected as a member of the National Sheriff’s Association’s Board of Directors, Leo also served as the President of the Constitutional Officers Association of New Jersey and Vice-President of the Sheriff’s Association of New Jersey before retiring from law enforcement in 2010. He continues supporting the community by serving on the iSupport Education Foundation Board and as State Vice-Chair for the Employer Support for the Guard and Reserves, a Dept. of Defence agency, while operating a consulting business, LPM Strategies.

Safety in our schools

Security 411- Our security staff possesses well over 400 years of combined in law enforcement and military experience. They serve as one of the many layers of security we have implemented to ensure a safe and secure educational environment for your child. With electronically controlled entrances, surveillance video systems, and random physical perimeter monitoring by our security officers, we are always striving to develop better and more efficient methods to keep all visitors, staff, and students safe. We conduct ourselves with professionalism and understand our role in nurturing and mentoring our students. We have been successful thus far in creating a positive and safe environment without the use of firearms by our officers. We recognize that some schools have made the decision to allow their security officers to carry weapons and respect their rationale, but we have decided our layers of security are appropriate and appreciated by our staff and students.
