Entry Title Date
Sexual Assault Awareness Month April 3, 2014
Robert Scott, D-VA
"The potential for victimization does not end at childhood. The rates of campus sexual assault far exceed the rates during any time of a young person’s life. Most of the victims know their attackers. Colleges need to ensure the safety of those entrusted in their care. A recently established campus safety center can go a long way in setting up the protocols to both reduce sexual assault for those on campuses and to properly respond when the assaults occur."
Honoring Officer Chuck Stratton January 13, 2014
Jason Smith, R-MO
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Officer Chuck Stratton of Poplar Bluff, Missouri for his exemplary service to his community through the Poplar Bluff Police Department. Officer Stratton first served our country in the United States Air Force, and began working for the Police Force in 1984 as a reserve officer. Over the next 29 years Officer Stratton served in a variety of positions within the Poplar Bluff Police Department, excelling in all. His work investigating narcotics began as a Canine handler before joining the SEMO drug task force in 1990. Towards the end of his career, Officer Stratton worked in the Evidence and Accreditation departments, and lastly as the Chief of Police and Director of Campus Safety for the Three Rivers College System."
First Session Of The 113Th Congress Reflections December 19, 2013
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"The committee also passed several bills to prevent gun violence and protect law enforcement officers, including Senator Boxer’s bipartisan School and Campus Safety Enhancements Act of 2013, Senator Franken’s bipartisan Justice and Mental Health Collaboration, and Senator Cardin’s bipartisan National Blue Alert Act. Each of these bills was carefully crafted and enjoy bipartisan support. I urge the Senate to consider these important legislative proposals early in the next session."
Commemorating Virginia Tech Shooting April 16, 2013
Mark Warner, D-VA
"An underlying amendment of the bill we are about to debate has at least one part of the legislation which is relatively noncontroversial, a piece of legislation I have been working on for some time. I know Senator Kaine has supported this as well. The issue is to look at campus safety. It has been one of the top priorities of those victims of the Virginia Tech massacre."
Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act Of 2013—Continued April 16, 2013
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"I wish to recognize the leadership of our two Senators from Virginia and their efforts to prevent another Virginia Tech. As he discussed earlier, Senator Warner has been actively engaged in efforts to bring research and resources together to make our schools and campuses safer. His leadership has been extremely important. Colleges and universities play an extraordinarily important role in my own State of Connecticut. I know they are constantly working to keep their campuses safe. The School and Campus Safety Enhancements Act included in the gun violence legislation currently before this body would be an important step toward giving these very institutions of higher learning what they need to protect our students and support the kind of research that is necessary to develop new means and possibly new technology, new tools that our institutions of higher learning but also institutions of learning across-the-board, beginning with our elementary schools, need to do better."
