CTeen and the Chabad Security Commission are working closely with the New York Police Department and relevant law enforcement agencies to ensure the safety and security of all the participants at the CTeen convention on February 23-25. 

The Chabad Security Commission has tremendous experience in this field, most notably they provide the security for the International Conference of Chabad Shluchim, which hosts crowds upwards of 5,000 people twice a year.
