Comment: We already have that...

(See in situ)


We already have that...

I'm a teacher in CT and I can tell you we already have that... They're called School Resource Officers. Just police officers that walk around the building and make sure that nothing is getting out of control. I feel safer having one and I wish that the school in Sandy Hook had had one... I think that a lot of you are missing out on how teachers are feeling through this. We feel vulnerable in a way that we haven't before. We look at our school's differently now. We worry about the doors that have broken locks, when we didn't a week and a half ago. We worry about procedures for making sure everyone's safe...

But either way, I think this isn't a place for DHS to get involved. The local police are doing a phenomenal job keeping us safe (they were in today to go over security procedures with us and make sure that our building is safe in the case of a threat entering the building). As usual, we should keep control with our local governments in this matter.
