SHELLEY, Idaho (AP) — Idaho first lady Lori Otter has launched a new program to promote school safety across the state.

The Post Register reports that Otter on Thursday at Shelley High School announced the Idaho Office of School Safety and Security, which will foster better school safety habits in light of recent school shootings.

Initiative was launched July 1 under the Division of Building Safety and will conduct security checks at all Idaho schools every three years. Otter is currently touring the state to raise awareness for the new office.
