About Us

Since 1998, the S2 Safety & Intelligence Institute has trained thousands of professionals in security risk management and public safety topics. Over the past 22 years, S2 has earned a reputation as one of the world’s premier sources for security and public safety training.

We provide classroom instruction and hands-on training at two regional schools in Florida, a series of joint-operated academies, and venue locations throughout the world. Through our sister company, the S2 Online Academy, we also deliver high quality distance education to students unable to attend live courses.

In addition to public courses, S2 provides private training and consulting assistance for a diverse range of corporations and government ministries.

Live Training


With the exception of Tampa-area Class D Security Officer courses, the S2 Institute has temporarily suspended live, public training until COVID-19 travel restrictions are removed. In the meantime, we are conducting many of our flagship programs online using the Zoom video conferencing system. Please see our course calendar for a list of upcoming Zoom courses.
