"Councilman Tom Bradley discusses school violence"

December 14, 1972


City councilman Tom Bradley speaks about violence in Los Angeles schools and his proposals to have departments work together to solve the problem. In addition, he demonstrates a device that he believes could be used in schools to help reduce the number of times police have to be called. Teachers could alert a person responsible for monitoring the device that there is a situation that requires a response. The monitor could then dispatch a teacher or security officer to that location. Bradley also proposes an ad-hoc committee that would pull together police, school administration and other groups to work on the issue.
