PUBLIC
BILL SUMMARY For VIOLENCE AGAINST YOUTH

INTERIM COMMITTEE  COLORADO YOUTH ADVISORY COUNCIL COMMITTEE
Date Aug 9, 2023      
Location HCR 0112



Violence Against Youth - Committee Discussion Only


01:34:47 PM  
Cate Preece, from Senate District 26, presented on gun violence against youth. School shootings are a large problem in Colorado, and the threat assessment and data in schools is underutilized and inconsistent. A solution is to have a gun violence prevention task force to examine gun violence in schools and that school districts inform parents on safe storage of firearms.
01:40:36 PM  
The committee asked
about reaching out to law enforcement. Ms. Preece stated that the committee
has not reached out to law enforcement but that a school resource officer
representative should be part of the discussion going forward. They also
stated that further background information to resource officers can be
helpful in making them effective.
