Ford Offers Help to Combat Threats to Union Schools
Rep. Ross Ford, R-Broken Arrow, vowed to help track down those who have made recent bomb threats made against several schools in the Union Public Schools district.
“I will work with law enforcement in any I can way to help protect the young people and teachers in our public schools and to ensure these perpetrators are punished to the fullest extent of the law,” Ford said. “I take very seriously the matter of school security and will not abide threats made against our children or our educators. Students, parents and all educators deserve schools that are free from violence and the threat of violence.
“We must be vigilant to foster an environment where youth can thrive as they learn. I and many other lawmakers have worked hard to support our public schools with increased funding for our classrooms and teacher pay raises as well as many other policy changes intended to boost student academic success. We will not abide these threats of harm against the innocent.”
Ford, a former Tulsa Police officer, served as director of security for Union Public Schools and was a former school board member. His House district includes the Union Public Schools district.
