Texas schools will have greater law enforcement presence

School staff, students and administration will see a greater law enforcement presence this fall under plans unveiled by Gov. Greg Abbott. Back in may, just weeks after the deadly Santa Fe school shooting, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott unveiled a 40-point school safety plan that touches on issues ranging from boosting law enforcement presence at schools to increasing social media monitoring to potentially prevent deadly shootings before they occur. His plan would provide more than $120 million in state and federal grants to Texas schools. The goal is to let each district pick solutions that would best keep their students and teachers safe. “This plan is a starting point, not an ending place,” Abbott told media gathered Wednesday at Dallas school district headquarters. “It provides strategies that can be used before the next school year begins to keep our students safe when they return to school.
