AGs Focusing On School Violence

NASHVILLE -- District Attorney General Berkeley Bell is working with law enforcement officers, school principals and guidance counselors to combat school violence by identifying warning signs among teens.

The efforts are part of a proactive initiative by the Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference to help community leaders keep schools safe amid continued national incidents of juvenile violence, according to a news release.

Attendees at the seminar learned how to identify gang and cult practices, spot danger signs among teens such as obsessions with violence and weapons, and what to do to keep teens safe and get them any necessary help.

The conference partnered with the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police, and the Tennessee Sheriff's Association to host the "Protecting Our Children: Proactive and Prepared" seminar on Jan. 29 in Nashville.

Phil Chalmers, a nationally recognized expert on teen violence, trained attendees on how to help teens in trouble while keeping schools and communities safe.

"Training sessions and resources from the conference keep us updated on what's happening nationally that could have an impact here at home," Bell was quoted in the release.

"We do everything we can to help our police officers and school officials take action and prevent the same kinds of tragedies we see on the news from happening here."

"We often deal with juvenile violence that could have been avoided if someone had known what to do," said Guy Jones, deputy director of the conference.

"We want to equip the community with the tools they need to turn a potential teen killer into a teen who gets help."

If anyone has questions about the seminar or how to identify warning signs among teens, please contact the local district attorney's office, call 615-741-1696 or visit for more information.
