Governor’s Task Force to Study Mississippi School Security

Chicot Memorial

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant is establishing a school safety task force to study shooting threats, prevention and response. The Republican governor signed an executive order on Tuesday creating the task force. Public Safety Commissioner Marshall Fisher will lead the group which will submit a written report on current safety procedures, identifying potential threats, evaluating current school response efforts and recommending improvements. The state Office of Homeland Security, part of the Department of Public Safety, has been leading school shooting response training for Mississippi schools. The most common course taught is Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events which teaches school personnel how to run from, barricade against or attack a shooter.
