This week marks one month since the school shooting in Parkland, Florida that killed 17. Students nationwide are planning to walk out of their schools on March 14 in another push for more gun regulation from Congress. Arizona 360 looks at some of the current safeguards in place for active shooter situations. UAPD THREAT RESPONSE – discussion – UAPD Chief Brian Seastone has been with the department for over 30 years and was on duty when a College of Nursing student shot and killed three of his instructors, along with himself. Chief Seastone joined Lorraine Rivera in studio to talk about how the department has changed to address these types of threats. PROTECTING SOFT TARGETS – package – Arizona 360 looks at the approach taken by two different organizations to protect people from an attack at what are commonly considered "soft targets": churches and schools. In the wake of the church shooting in Sutherland Spring, Texas last year, the insurance group Landmark Protection created a new workshop that addresses church security. At a recent session in Marana, instructors explained what steps congregations can take to deter violence in the first place. The Tanque Verde Unified School District teamed up with ICSAVE, a nonprofit made up of volunteer first responders in Southern Arizona, to provide free tourniquet training to all of its faculty and staff. Arizona 360 observed a course offered at Tanque Verde Elementary School. PAC-12 REFORM – discussion – After a tumultuous FBI investigation into illicit recruiting allegations, the Pac-12 created a task force to look at what potentially causes any wrongdoing and make recommendations. The group released its report this week. Ricardo Valerdi oversees the Sports Management Program at Eller and serves as the University of Arizona's faculty athletics representative for the Pac-12. He explained what balance the university is trying to strike between supporting student athletes' performance and academics. REMEMBERING HENRY KOFFLER – discussion – Former UA President Henry Koffler died this week at the age of 95. He’s credited with leading the university during a time of significant growth from 1982 to 1991. Former UA Provost George Davis shared Koffler’s many feats and what he cherished most about his late friend.
