'We must not accept this as the new normal': Law enforcement reacts to Uvalde school shooting

PDs have taken to social media to address community concerns about school safety and stress the importance of "see something, say something"

By Police1 Staff

Following Tuesday's mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, in which 19 children and two teachers were killed, law enforcement agencies took to social media to share how they are responding to community concerns about school safety. Many departments are emphasizing the importance of "see something, say something" and for community members to report any activity or behavior they deem suspicious. 

Yesterday, citizen information came into play after a woman called with information about a man with a weapon walking toward a high school in Richardson, Texas. The hashtag #SeeSomethingSaySomething is now trending on Twitter.
