KINGSTON – A new Ulster County Public Safety Advisory Committee has been formed in response to the tragedy in Newtown with the goal of making recommendations to prevent any incidents locally.

The group will address five topic areas – identifying ways in which to identify individuals who are at risk of causing violence; identifying ways in which those individuals can be helped; identifying other ways to prevent violence; examining how drug abuse and drug-related crimes can be reduced; and identifying ways in which to protect people in public places.
