At a joint news conference Monday, the Superintendent of LA Unified appeared with Mayor Villaraigosa and the Chief of Police to tell parents about efforts to increase security at LA schools. Chief Charlie Beck announced a combined joint effort with LAUSD Police, promising that officers will be present at least daily at every elementary and middle school. John Deasey, superintendent of the nation’s second largest school district, vowed, despite the district’s “devastating budget cuts,” to augment security. To reduce the number of guns on the street, Mayor Villaraigosa promised an update on the gun buyback program run by the Office of Gang Reduction and Youth Development from May, 2013 to Wednesday, December 26.
