Wisconsin's new task force on campus safety held its second summit in Eau Claire on Thursday. Governor Doyle created the task force in response to the Virginia Tech massacre this past spring.

This second summit focused on how to handle students who show warning signs related to mental health. Governor says members are focused on dealing with students that have a history of problems and may be a danger to others. He wants them to examine ways to make sure they have access to the help they need and that steps are taken to protect other students.

More than eighty registrants attended the session, which included a mix of law enforcement, education, and student mental health professionals.

The Governor has asked the statewide task force to come up with some recommendations by the time classes start this fall.
