Why Safety 360?

Safety 360 is the joining of two professional worlds; real estate and protective services.  With over two million active real estate agents in the United States and over 86,004 real estate brokerage firms operating in our country, the need for their safety and security is real and it is vast.

By combining the expertise of these two industries, we've proven to be extremely effective at bringing not only "best practices" in safety and security to real estate providers, but also to instruct on the realities of what dangers exist for real estate agents both in their offices, and while in their communities showing homes, holding open houses, and meeting with potential clients.   

Safety 360 - A Plan for Personal Protection

is your training portal for all of your personal

security needs.

Do you have a personal protection plan?

Let us help you develop one!

Our Story

Safety 360's story began in 2016.  The connection started out as a simple conversation between two entrepreneurs, Valerie Ashley, a realtor based in Des Moines, Iowa, and KDI founder Karl de la Guerra.

The conversation focused on the increasing need to openly support our nation's law enforcement.

Our partnership has grown to become an ever evolving coalition to change lives through empathy, education and empowerment.  Each day, we put our talents to work creating, developing and tailoring solutions to fit others' needs by creating and delivering individualized Personal Protection Plans.
