Hartford – State Representative J.P. Sredzinski (R-Monroe) took the opportunity to question a representative of the State’s Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP) regarding legislation aimed at strengthening school security protocol and action during the Public Safety Committee’s Public Hearing on Tuesday, March 12.
“The School Security Working Group has met with key stakeholders: school administrators, first responders and parents in order to determine actionable recommendations for the legislature to act upon during the current legislative session. Today I was able to drill down on some of those proposals in order to get an idea of what we can do to support DESPP and local school districts in their duty of keeping our school children safe when they are trying to learn,” stated Rep. Sredzinski.
The specific piece of legislation discussed between Rep. Sredzinski and DESPP was House Bill 7291: An Act Concerning School Security.
