From practice drills to safety lessons being made more widely available, the Bucks County police departments are workking to keep children more prepared and informed of potential dangers in modern society.

“Protocols for lockdowns for interior threats and exterior threats have been developed,” said New Hope Chief Michael Cummings. “A company has been brought in by the school district to map out each facility in the school district; this 3D mapping system is available to the police, fire and EMS on the mobile data terminals.”

Accessibility to schools for local authorities will be made a priority, so as to avoid situations like the recent debacle in the Uvalde, Texas school shooting.
