Two local school divisions are once again partnering with other local agencies to identify threats in schools.

“It’s an agreement in principle between a bunch of different community service organizations who are agreeing to share information to try to reduce threats and the potential of threats for kids and for people at large,” said Tony Baldwin, Prairie South School Division director of education.

The Community Threat Assessment Protocol (COMTAT) agreement is between the Prairie South School Division, the Holy Trinity Catholic School Division, the Moose Jaw Police Service, the Ministry of Social Services, the Five Hills Health Region Mental Health and Addictions, the Ministry of Corrections and Policing, the John Howard Society, Saskatchewan Polytechnic, Briercrest College and Seminary and the Moose Jaw Multicultural Council.
