Criminal Justice and Public Safety

Legislative Office Building, Room 202-204

10:30 AM Public Hearing on SB 244-FN, relative to false public alarms

  • False school shooting alarms cause stress for students, educators, parents, and first responders
  • False school shooting alarms cost taxpayers for the cost of emergency response
  • False school shooting alarms are becoming more frequent, particularly from swatters, and the FBI has a dedicated training program around them; increasing penalties for the individuals responsible for these calls can help prevent this practice from continuing
  • It is because gun violence is so prevalent in our country, and death from gun violence is the number one cause of death for America’s children, that so many students, educators, and families are impacted by the terror that fake school shooter calls generate. We need to do more to reduce gun violence by passing common sense gun violence prevention policies.
