Speak up and save lives

Thursday, February 21, 2019 by The Press in Opinion

Last year, the Pennsylvania General Assembly passed and Gov. Tom Wolf signed Act 44, which establishes the Safe2Say Something program in each of the more than 500 school districts in Pennsylvania.

The explanation and training involved with this program began in mid-January, and the goal is to have every district on board within the next several months.

The program is already paying dividends. On Jan. 17, Hazleton police say that a 14-year-old student was apprehended after threatening gun violence at the district’s elementary-middle school.
