REWATCH: NBC12 holds first-ever 'Digital Dialogue' on school violence

REWATCH: Safety and mental health experts weigh-in on school violence

(WWBT) - In response to a shooting that left 17 people dead at a Florida high school, NBC12 is diving deeper into the issue of school violence. And we asked you to be a part of the discussion.

On Tuesday morning, we invited you to our first-ever "On Your Side Digital Dialogue." Our viewers were able to ask questions on Facebook Live, or just observe the conversation on the NBC12 news app as well as our channels on Roku and Amazon Fire.


Investigator Rachel DePompa was joined by a panel of experts to talk about school violence - not just guns, but bullying and mental health as well.

Panel Included:

  • Dr. John Lindstrom the CEO  of the Richmond Behavioral Health Authority - an expert on mental health and violence in schools. He worked with the Governor's Task Force for School and Campus Safety.
  • Mike Jones with Major Security Consulting and Design based out of Chesterfield. He's a former Capitol Police Chief and former EMT with 27 years law enforcement training. He's been a consultant for the Baltimore Police Department and also teaches at VCU.
