Panic Buttons In NJ Schools Proposed By Essex Assemblyman
Democratic Assemblyman Ralph Caputo's plan would also install red emergency lights outside schools.
An Essex County Assemblyman has introduced a bill that would equip New Jersey public schools with a silent panic alarm that could be triggered in the event of an emergency, NJ101.5 reported.
Assemblyman Ralph Caputo, D-Belleville, said that it makes sense to link a panic button from schools to local law enforcement.
Caputo told 101.5 that legislators and police officers each support the bill.
