Lou Barletta Commends Pennsylvania Sheriffs’ Association Resolution on School Safety

Hazleton -- On Saturday, July 16, 2018, Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, Congressman Lou Barletta, spoke at the Sheriffs’ Association of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania 96th Annual Conference in Reading, PA. At the conference, the Sheriffs’ Association adopted a resolution on School Safety, identifying schools as “critical infrastructure and key assets to our communities.”

“Day in and day out, law enforcement serve our communities, protect our families, and keep our neighborhoods safe,” said Congressman Barletta. “I commend the Pennsylvania Sheriff’s Association for taking this important step towards ensuring our kids are safe at school. As the father of four daughters, two of whom are teachers, and a grandfather of eight grandkids, school security is an issue that hits close to home. Congress must do more to support state and local law enforcement, who are on the front lines of keeping our kids safe at school.”

“Right now, every federal employee can go to work today and have no fear that anything will happen, but yet our kids, and teachers, go to school worried if today is the day they’ll be attacked. I wish we could take every bit of protection we have in Congress and give it to a school in this country -- you’ll see how fast Congress finds money. What makes my life more special than your kids or grandkids? Our kids are much more important than politicians in Congress and I will continue to fight until every kid in this country is safe,” he said.

The Pennsylvania Sheriffs’ Association adopted a resolution at the conference designating school safety and security as one of their top priorities. The resolution called for more physical security of school facilities and improved incident response. This includes hardening schools with layered security and making each classroom and our schools a protected space.

Barletta has been a national leader on school security in Congress. In May, Baretta introduced legislation which requires the U.S. Departments of Education and Homeland Security to develop guidelines for school security which is already in place for federal buildings. While it doesn’t create another unfunded mandate, the legislation provides recommendations to ensure schools are safe.

Additionally, Barletta is calling to double funding for the Secure Our Schools Program from $75 million to $150 million.
