Alyssa's Law requires each public elementary and secondary school building to be equipped with at least one panic alarm that is directly linked to local law enforcement authorities. This addresses the issue of response time in emergencies.
New York, New Jersey, and Florida have versions of Alyssa's Law already in effect, with pending legislation in Nebraska, Arizona, Texas, and Virginia. This law is currently being considered at the federal level, which would make it applicable to all states.
