St. Joseph County School districts discuss safety


Representatives from several St. Joseph County school districts met Wednesday to kick start a county wide Safe Schools Commission.

South Bend security director and school resource officer, Lt... Eric Crittendon says there was a committee like this in the past, but they are bringing it back. The commission is a requirement for schools wanting to apply for federal grants, but Crittendon says there will be much to gain.

"The value is bringing ideas forth, knowing what each school district is doing, and sharing these ideas because we can learn from each other," he says.

The commission will meet again in the spring and it's open to every district in the county.
