Local School Safety Training – And A Way For Parents To Voice Their Concerns

Amanda Currier/TSM

Since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, school safety has continued to be a hot topic. So don’t be surprised to see a lot of activity around a local school today.

Local law enforcement are teaming up today to focus on school safety. Caddo sheriff’s deputies and Shreveport police officers are participating in a joint training exercise on school security. They’ll train for an “active shooter” event and will use role-playing and simulation equipment to bring realism to the scenario. They’re getting together in the vacant Edie Jones West Shreveport Elementary School on Murphy Street, and will wrap up their training around 2 this afternoon.

On another note, a state legislator has created an email address, so Louisiana parents can submit their questions and concerns on school safety. It’s a lengthy one, so we were unable to announce it on the air this morning. But here it is, if you’d like to send in your comments: schoolsafetycomments@legis.la.gov.
