Oneida County taking part in initiative to combat school violence

Law Enforcement Against Drugs and Violence is launching a nationwide threat assessment initiative. 

This is in conjunction with “Safer Schools Together” to combat violence and bullying that stems from social media.

The Oneida County Sheriff’s Department will be one of the hundreds of police agencies to work with schools through this program.

Lead organizers are meant to educate law enforcement and school personnel about the online behaviors of students on a path towards violence.

“So we are actually training individuals on what to look out for,” L.E.A.D. CEO Nick DeMauro said. “What are the buzz words? What are the codes being used to trigger a warning there could be a problem in your community?”

There will be a one-hour workshop this coming Wednesday based out of Atlantic City to outline the training and how to receive it.

L.E.A.D. is used in 39 other states across the country.
