State Rep Cavaletto Pushes Resolution to Improve School Safety
HB153 encourages State and local law enforcement agencies and public school districts to establish walk-through programs that would permit State and local law enforcement officials to more frequently stop and walk through public school properties during their patrol to increase security.
"I think this house resolution is good. It is not a mandate. When the policemen in their district are free, and they go by a school, we ask that they stop and walk though. Being seen and their presence may stop a lot of problems," said Cavaletto.
Cavaletto says if someone is planning an attack on a school, they may be deterred knowing that a police officer may be at the school at the time they are planning the attack.
