DA Suggests Procedures To Respond To School Violence

May 11, 2018

The Orange County district attorney has released suggested procedures for school districts in responding to incidents of violence or potential violence.

Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler says the procedures were developed in cooperation with school superintendents, are voluntary, and are designed to supplement the emergency procedures that school districts already have in place. The recommended procedures that were prompted by the February Parkland, Florida school shooting are to enable school districts to assist law enforcement in securing evidence, in case a school incident is later handled as a criminal matter.
