Kim Carter, director of the Oklahoma office of Homeland Security, proposed one program:
• Oklahoma school safety and security resource center. The center would serve as a clearinghouse for training, school procedures and information for educators throughout the state, Carter said. It also would provide training for experts in the criminal justice and mental health fields. The center would be run by the Oklahoma office of Homeland Security, but other agencies could serve as partners. The center would cost about $522,000, Carter said.
