Senator Kate Bolz Statement on Violence Prevention
It is heartbreaking any time violence occurs. As a State Senator, I take my responsibility to promote community safety seriously. In light of the recent national conversation about school violence and the tragic event in my own neighborhood today, I feel compelled to continue our work to prevent violence in our communities.
Tomorrow, I will introduce an interim study to examine opportunities for expansion of Nebraska’s Office of Violence Prevention as well as ways in which we can provide additional funding to this important purpose. My sincere condolences to those who have lost friends and family members, especially my neighbors today. Too many families have felt this pain, this action is only one step we must take toward working together to build safer communities.
