Our local member of Congress, Mike Johnson, voted to pass the Student, Teachers, and Officers Preventing (STOP) School Violence Act. Johnson supported the measure which will train students, school officials, and local law enforcement on how to recognize and respond quickly to warning signs and provide funding for technology to keep schools safe.
Johnson said, “Ensuring our children’s safety is of the utmost importance, and we are acting in Congress to ensure students are protected while at school. Putting an end to school violence begins with noticing the warning signs and knowing how to proceed when they are present. The STOP School Violence Act educates students, school officials and local law enforcement on how to prevent tragedies before they happen. I am proud to have supported this legislation and look forward to continuing our efforts on this front.”
