Attorney General McDaniel Joins National Task Force on School Safety

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel announced plans this afternoon to join a coalition of the nation's state Attorneys General in a coordinated effort to examine legal issues related to school violence and safety.

In light of recent outbreaks of violence on college campuses and schools, McDaniel, under the auspices of the National Association of Attorneys General, the professional membership association of the nation's 56 elected and appointed state Attorneys General, will work with his colleagues on the Task Force on School Safety to identify legal and policy barriers to ensuring students safe learning environments.

"Here in Arkansas, we know all to well the devastating effect that school violence can have on a community," said McDaniel.  "After the Westside School shootings in Jonesboro, I saw firsthand the aftermath of school violence.  Now as Attorney General, I want to begin the process of implementing steps to ensure that all places of learning are safe, secure and free of violence."
