• In Arkansas, school resource officers are being trained under a new approach to active shooter incidents in schools. The “solo engagement” protocol is replacing the past policy of waiting for backup before engaging an active shooter. • In Alabama, Shelby County Schools and the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office look to expand the Camp Journey Summer Camp. The five-day camp for students develops leadership, values, and provides a better understanding of law enforcement’s role in the community. • In Ohio, school resource officers in the Akron Public Schools will have the opioid overdose antidote Narcan on hand when school begins this fall. • In Maryland, the Montgomery County Public Schools are spending $1.5 million to upgrade security. The security upgrades were approved after two Rockville High School students were accused of sexually assaulting another student on campus. The improvements will include vestibules near entrance doors, security gates, lock changes, upgraded security cameras, and the hiring of additional school resource officers.
