SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Chuck Norris is teaming up with the state of Texas to help make schools safer this year.

Governor Greg Abbott and Texas Department of Public Safety are announcing a new public service announcement featuring the ‘Walker, Texas Ranger’ star that highlights a reporting system called iWatchTexas that will help students, teachers and administration to report suspicious activity.

“There is nothing more important than keeping our schools and communities safe,” said Governor Abbott. “Parents, teachers, and students deserve to feel safe and secure returning to school this fall, and who better to help spread the message about the iWatchTexas reporting system than ‘Texas Ranger’ Chuck Norris. We ask Texans to utilize iWatchTexas to report nearby suspicious activity to help our law enforcement quickly and effectively respond to any criminal, terroristic, or school safety threats. If you see something, say something and together we can protect our children, teachers, and communities.”

In June, Governor Abbott directed DPS, the Texas Education Agency, and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to expand and accelerate their efforts to promote the ability to report suspicious activity known to students, staff, and families through the iWatchTexas reporting system.

The new PSA will begin airing all over Texas beginning August 17.
