TC-SchoolGangA new program requiring school officials to report any weapons or gang activity to police was signed into law today. The new law was sponsored by State Senator Tom Cullerton.

“We cannot ignore signs of gang activity in our schools,” Cullerton said. “We must do everything possible to keep the influences of gangs away from children, especially while at school.”

Prior to this program, the law only required school administrators to notify law enforcement if the safety of students and teachers is threatened by illegal drugs and alcohol. Cullerton’s proposal expands that to gang activity and weapons.

“This law helps ensure schools are gang-free zones and create a more successful and safer learning environment for our children,” Cullerton said.
