The Oklahoma Sheriffs’ Association recently voted to endorse a school safety application known as Rave Mobile Safety. The Rave Panic Button, if state funding is allocated, would be deployed to all K-12 public schools across Oklahoma according to OSA executive director Ray McNair.
“The Oklahoma Sheriffs’ Association recently became aware of the Rave Panic Button school safety program via Arkansas, where it is deployed statewide to over 1,000 schools, and recently won a legislative policy award by the Southern Legislative Conference,” McNair said. “OSA members believe that protecting our children is a top priority and endorse this school safety application as a solution that will save lives, and most importantly, will work for all types of school emergencies, ensuring that the program can be used whenever an incident occurs on campus.”
According to the FBI Study of Active Shooter Events, during an active assailant incident, another person is shot every 15 seconds. The Rave system provides immediate notification to those on-site of the incident including SRO’s, teachers, faculty and staff. It also notifies law enforcement that an event is occurring which reduces overall response time.
