Attorney General Wants Increased Campus Safety

Attorney General Greg Stumbo calls for reforms to increase campus safety.

Stumbo wants federal and state leaders to improve laws and educational policies that may leave students vulnerable to violence.

Stumbo released a 14-page report that includes specific recommendations for improved security.

Among the topics addressed are threat assessment, protocols for dealing with the mentally ill, information sharing among law enforcement agencies and crisis response.

Stumbo says the states universities have taken vital steps to enhance campus safety as a result of the Virginia Tech tragedy and the goal of this report is to continue the dialog.

    I live very close to WKU and many times see students just walking through back doors. This seems like a real threat for everyone in that building. Why not use some type of student ID card for entrances that are out of the way, do we have to wait for the same thing to happen here as in others schools???
