All schools in GA to receive $45,000 funding for enhanced security measures this year

The annual state school safety conference aims to equip educators and law enforcement officials with the necessary skills to identify potential issues and prevent them from escalating into violent incidents at local schools.

Every public school in Georgia will receive $45,000 this year to enhance their school security.

Chris Stallings, the director of GEMA, is responsible for preparing for the most challenging situations.

“Recognizing and detecting a problem at its earliest stage is crucial,” Stalling emphasized during his interview with Channel 2’s Richard Elliot.

In an exclusive interview on Tuesday, Elliot spoke with Stallings and State School Superintendent Richard Woods just ahead of the State School Safety Conference. This conference provides educators an opportunity to collaborate with law enforcement officials in order to prevent security issues before they even arise.

According to Woods, it is important to take a proactive approach in order to prevent any potential incidents from occurring. However, he also emphasizes the need to be prepared for any situation that may arise.
