The state is unveiling its new Ohio School Safety Center today as a panel that will advise that office begins its work.

The new office under Ohio Homeland Security is intended to help educators and police prevent and address violence involving schools and students.

It began its work months ago with a staff that included intelligence analysts scanning social media and websites for threats.

It will get input from a new working group that includes representatives of schools and school employees who work with students in crisis, as well as emergency responders, other state offices and organizations that promote children’s wellness.
