Employees at three Cobb schools will be carrying panic buttons this year, giving them the power to communicate the type of emergency to the central office, which can then put a school on lockdown.
Officer Phillip Bradford handles emergency response for the Cobb County School District's police force. He said the new system can cut response time down to seconds.
