Imagine a neighborhood watch approach to school security. 
That is the idea behind legislation being pushed by Alabama state Rep. Allen Farley’s, which would allow schools to work with local law enforcement to create a trained school security program.
The team could be made up of teachers, school officials, coaches, or almost any member of the community. Farley said the names would be vetted and trained by law enforcement on how to handle an active shooter. Members on the team could be armed and would be known by law enforcement if they were responding to an active shooter situation.
Under the plan, only a select few would know who were members of the security team.
The bill is based of a local legislation passed for Franklin County back in 2013. Johnny Mack Morrow, D-Red Bay, was the bill sponsor. He said schools in the district are sometimes as much as 30 minutes away from local law enforcement.
“It’s about creating a security force much like the neighborhood watch program that was so popular back in the 70s and 80s, and it worked in Alabama in rural areas, and it will work again,” Morrow said.
Morrow is supportive of implementing the plan statewide and says he believes in law enforcement and educators' abilities to come up with a plan.
“They are the experts. I’ll let them decide. I’m a legislator I don’t know what a good security program is,“ Morrow said.
Farley said he decided to propose a statewide version of the legislation after talking to Franklin County officials.
“They had nothing negative to say. They say it had worked. It had worked beautifully,“ Farley explained.
Farley said the training aspect of the team would allow law enforcement to be familiar with those who may be armed inside the schools, to not get in the way of a dangerous crossfire.
The bill is just the latest of multiple proposals dealing with either school safety or guns in the wake of the Florida school shooting that claimed 17 lives.

We have just confirmed moments ago that a security officer was shot and killed during the Active Shooter incident at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School yesterday.
 
Authorities have now confirmed that Aaron Feis who was an Assistant Football Coach and security officer at the school shielded students during the gunfire and was killed.
 
According to numerous witnesses, he selflessly shielded students from the shooter when he was shot.
 
He died a hero.
 
Media reports continue to say that a second security officer, a woman, was also killed and that her body was seen on the ground.

We are waiting for further details about these deaths and we are working with several sources, communicating with area officials and we will update this tragic news as soon as we learn further details.

The incident happened on October 15, and police said the victim has been brain dead ever since.
 
Reports said the victim was at Jazzy's Restaurant and Lounge on Hampton Street where Lamar Clay was working security.
 
Other security guards were escorting the victim out of the club when police said the guy getting kicked out punched one of the guards in the face.
 
They threw him to the ground, and officials said Clay jumped on top of him and punched him repeatedly in the face.
 
The others eventually broke it up and called police, and the victim was rushed to Skyline Medical Center where he was pronounced brain dead.
 
Authorities said the entire assault was caught on the club's security cameras.
 
Clay has been expected to appear in court on Tuesday. POI
