HARTFORD – Members of the School Security Working Group including Chairwoman State Representative Carol Hall (R-Enfield), Secretary State Representative Dorinda Border (D-West Haven) and Ranking Member of the Public Safety Committee State Representative JP Sredzinski (R-Monroe) announced their legislative agenda at a press conference at the Legislative Office Building on Wednesday, February 27th.

The legislators came together to study school safety and security following the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas School.

Rep. Hall opened the press conference commenting, “Since April of last year, this working group has made a thorough study of school safety and security. We have heard from a wide range of experts and stakeholders from districts and organizations across the state. We found that continuing school safety and security requires a holistic approach supported by three different but equally important concepts. These include: enhance our mental health support in schools through social and emotional learning, through early identification and intervention, positive school environment and great access to social workers and councilors, hardening of school facilities and the presence of school resource or armed safety officers.”
