School Safety Initiative

Given the horrific events related to the active shooter in Uvalde, TX on 24 May 2022, the law enforcement community, school districts, and citizens have an overwhelming urge to develop immediate solutions to better safeguard our schools and children.  The Milam County Sheriff's Office, along with our partner agencies, are taking the initiative to increase patrols of our school campuses and conduct safety checks at random times throughout the school year.  Additionally, we have provided the Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (C.R.A.S.E.)  course to all of the county's school districts and provided Stop the Bleed Training as well.
