School Safety Panel To Be Formed
The president of the city council in Springfield Massachusetts on Monday is appointing a school safety committee.
Springfield City Council President James Ferrera announced plans to form a school safety committee during a speech to the city council just weeks after the Sandy Hook School shooting.
Ferrera said the committee would work with the city administration, police and the public school department to examine all aspects of security in the schools and how it can be improved. Police officers are currently assigned, during school hours to Springfield’s Middle Schools and High Schools. The main entrances to the city’s high schools have metal detectors.
