Yakima County Prosecutor Joe Brusic says school districts in the valley have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to school violence and threats and his office stands ready to prosecute those arrested. Brusic, who appeared on The Morning News on KIT Thursday says when juveniles are arrested for making threats or for bringing a gun to school they not only charges but a mental evaluation within
72 hours after arrest.
Brusic says he works closely with schools and area law enforcement on school safety.
He says gun free zones in schools are governed by state law and those caught with a gun could face a misdemeanor crime for carrying concealed in a gun free zone.
