Gov. Stitt signs executive order on school security, in light of Uvalde shooting

Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt announced an executive order Thursday to address school security in light of the deadly school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

Gov. Stitt says his administration reviewed school safeguards and realized existing resources and programs are being under utilized.

His executive order is called Mission S.O.S. It’s a 7-point plan based on recommendations from top law enforcement.

It requires law enforcement to receive the most up-to-date active shooter training, directs all schools to implement the Rave Panic Button app and offers every teacher threat assessment training.

“These are practical measures to take immediate action to keep our kids and teachers safe,” Stitt wrote. “Oklahoma is leading the nation and demonstrating that it’s possible to protect Second Amendment rights while also securing schools using the latest technology and training.”
