Governor Markell discusses the progress made in Delaware to ensure student safety in public schools through the implementation of comprehensive school safety plans.
Following an extensive evaluation by the Department of Safety and Homeland Security (DSHS) of the benefits and challenges of effectively implementing body cameras on law enforcement officers, Governor Markell and DSHS Secretary Lew Schiliro announced plans for State and Municipal police officers to participate in a 30-45 day trial, using about a dozen body cameras throughout the state.
Having worked with the General Assembly to make school safety improvements a top priority of the state, Governor Jack Markell recognized 2015-2016 as the first school year in which every Delaware public school is using a comprehensive safety plan to prepare for potential emergency situations, ranging from armed intruders to natural disasters.
Having made it a top priority to ensure Delaware fully benefits from the global economy, Governor Markell will be in Germany to strengthen relationships with German companies and business organizations.
Governor Markell emphasis the original intent of Labor Day and statewide efforts to support our workforce.
