According to the Sheriffs department:
“The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department works closely with all schools, public and private, within our policing jurisdiction to enhance safety for students and staff. Preventing these tragedies is a goal of law enforcement, schools and society as a whole. When an incident at a school does occur, it is our mutual goal to rapidly, safely, and efficiently resolve it.”
The department noted that each school is required to have a School Safety Plan specific to that campus that addresses emergency events. Sheriff's deputies, as well as local police authorities, train for a variety of emergencies with school staff. Each plan includes shelters, evacuation centers and lockdowns.
