“We are all school safety.” This is something I’ve said quite a bit in my first month as Chief of Police for the School District Police Department, and it’s something that I truly believe.

We take very seriously the responsibility that rests with us when our students – your children – are in our schools. But for parents, what happens on campus should be only part of the conversation when it comes to school safety.
U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), chairman of the Subcommittee on Communications, Technology, Innovation, and the Internet, will convene a hearing titled “There’s an App for That: Trends in Mobile Technologies,” at 2:30 p.m. on May 15, 2018.
