Nevada AG safe campus plan cites mobile app, ‘red flag’ laws


Nevada’s state attorney general says schools could be made safer by stepping up protections at school properties, encouraging students to report troubled classmates and asking the Legislature to look at so-called “red flag” laws to allow guns to be confiscated from people deemed to be a threat.

Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt is releasing several school safety recommendations Thursday with a report that follows a meeting he held in March, a month after a school shooting in Florida left 17 people dead.

The 32-page report focuses on topics aimed at reducing the time it takes to respond and confusion during incidents.

A key element is a mobile app called SafeVoice Nevada and establishment of an assessment program to identify troubled students and track them from one school to another.
