Mr. Coffey is an internationally known safety expert, who helps organizations keep their employees traveling safe and smart.|
He is also a leading resource to the meeting and hospitality industries as a duty of car and risk reduction expert.

  • Kevin has an innate talent for articulating risk reduction and response ideas that just make sense

Detective Coffey’s background is unique. A highly decorated officer, Kevin founded the Los Angeles Airport’s Crime Investigation Detail and he is now an instructor with the University of Southern California’s Safer Communities Institute. When the media needs an expert they look to Kevin as a subject matter expert. Kevin’s media appearances include: The Oprah Winfrey Show, 20/20, The Travel Channel, NBC, CNN and he has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, INC, Los Angeles Times,  plus many more publications and broadcasts.

His message resonates with travel industry associations, top corporations, and US government agencies including the FBI.

His first-hand crime experience with his assignment of investigating airport and travel related crime gave him insight as to how travelers are victimized and more importantly how to avoid it. He now shares this information in a series of risk reduction and response presentations for the public, as well as the travel, meeting, and hospitality industries.
