Local officials stress “See something, say something”
Officials in Utah say they want to prevent mass shootings, like the one in Florida, with the public’s help.
Steve Sautter with Salt Lake County Emergency Management says even if it seems minutely out of place, let law enforcement know.
The information is passed on to officials who review the information and make a determination on its credibility and the potential threat level. They then will pass it along to agencies who may need to have the info.
Perhaps they can stop a crime from happening or even a mass shooting.
They say after these kinds of events, people speak up about their concerns, but they should have before.
The best security system we have in place in our schools, is the eyes and ears of our students reporting unsafe behavior when they see it happening.

Drills like these help #keepUTschoolssafe. @BellViewElem Principal Chanci Loran and her staff diligently checked the hallways of her school during a shelter-in-place drill on Thursday morning. All CSD schools regularly hold safety drills. #keepingkidssafe #wearecanyons pic.twitter.com/fv6hM3IJTR
