BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Education and law enforcement leaders are taking a look at
security procedures in Louisiana schools just one day after President Barack
Obama announced his plan to curb violence across the country. Thursday, dozens
of people testified about school safety procedures before the House Select Committee
on Homeland Security.
State Superintendent John White recommended to lawmakers
that they should modify the state law that requires all elementary and
secondary public schools to have a written crisis management and response plan.
"We think the Legislature would be advised to look at the requirements," said
White. "Not just regarding how the plan is required but what is it to be
required to be done with it such as rehearsal."
St. James Parish Sheriff Gary Champagne was blunt about the
way law enforcement agencies deal with "active shooter" drills. "When a gunman
invades a school, we train our deputies to go in and take out the threat; which
means to go out and try to kill them," says Champagne.
State Police Superintendent Mike Edmonson explained that the
process of getting the state's schools attack proof will take some time. "I
wish there was a quick solution," Edmonson told the panel. "It's a work in
State officials have already met with law enforcement in
cities like Aurora, CO to get their recommendations.
