This is a fact that organizations like the Bunk Police and DanceSafe have acknowledged — far ahead of the actual policies within the US — and are attempting to help navigate the issue in the safest, most beneficial way.

Here are some of the most important pieces of information we took away.

They have had some crazy, and slightly dangerous encounters thanks to their line of work.
