Don't Just tell the Dispatcher About Your Emergency Show Them
It All Starts With The 9-1-1 Call
Our youth from elementary schools, whether public or private, to colleges/universities, need a unified system of safety. One that puts parents on the same level as student and teachers during an emergency situation, in or out of school.
One of the huge gaps with our school’s safety protocols, is that they are so different from one district to another. We also have to think; does every school even have safety procedures in place to follow? Right now if something happens at school, hiding in a bathroom and making a call to 9-1-1, needing to explain everything to a dispatcher just isn’t enough. Particularly if you are in an unfamiliar area.
Everyone, especially our youth, has a cell phone with them at most times; how convenient would it be to have an eye-to-eye conversation, via video, with that emergency dispatcher? Justifeyed has the potential to provide more power, and an eye into an emergency call. Let 2020 be the year that we as Americans have perfect vision when making an emergency phone call.
In America's public schools there are 3.2 million full-time-equivalent teachers, according to federal projections for the fall of 2018
The national average starting teacher salary is $38,617, while the average experienced teacher salary in America is $58,950
4.5 Million of trafficked persons are sexually exploited. Up to 300,000 Americans under 18 are lured into the commercial sex trade every year.
600,000 to 800,000 women, children and men bought and sold across international borders every year and exploited for forced labor or commercial sex (U.S. Government)
During a single year, an estimated 2.1 million youth under the age of 18 are arrested in the United States.1
Though overall rates have been declining over the past years, approximately 1.7 million delinquency cases are dropped in juvenile courts annually
A striking detail stands out in nearly three decades of American mass school shootings: The killers mostly use guns owned by a family member, not purchased on their own.
A total of 51 rifles have been used in 43 mass shootings between 1982 and February 2019.
Handguns are the most commonly used weapon type in mass shootings
If you saw a problem in the 20th Century, let’s solve it in the 21st Century
Raianna's School Safety App Act of 2020
I have high hopes that petitioning for a bill to create a law, can bring the changes our students need to create a unified system of safety. A bill that will benefits students, parents and school systems in all 50 states. We need to review how each school district informs parents in the event of an emergency, and how effective it is.
Once Justifeyed is implemented into our school systems, we can then allocate funds to these schools. These funds can be used to better compensate teachers and staff, and also better the programs for our students.
Our educators give back so much, including putting their own lives on the line in some instances. So why not give back to show how thankful we are as students? To show that their lives matter too. Justifeyed wants to work with, students, parents, teachers and their family members, to ensure that schools are safe and supportive places for our children to learn.
Please view the petition by clicking on "see it', once you have viewed it, sign it by clicking on "sign it". This will allow us to petition to introduce a bill into office, so Justifeyed can offer a unified safety of system to our schools, colleges, and universities.
