The head of safety and emergency services for Kentucky’s 16 community and technical colleges says the roadmap for addressing campus safety includes a great deal of emphasis on front end violence prevention. 

Todd Gray offered testimony Monday before the School Safety Working Group, which includes a number of state lawmakers.

“Especially discussing more ways on the front end, the behavioral teams, the crisis management teams, how to anticipate, how to look for those signs.  I believe they’re going to delve into that just a little deeper,” said Gray.

Gray says there is a need for short, medium, and long term planning which includes assessing infrastructure, like security cameras. He says, it also includes checking equipment.
