(Newser) – Newtown’s board of education wants armed officers protecting the town’s four elementary schools, reports NBC Connecticut. The board last night asked the town to approve money for the school resource officers, who already have a permanent presence at Newtown’s middle and high schools. “After what happened in our community, I just think we should go over and above and provide a shining example for the rest of the world and protect our kids,” said one resident quoted in the story.
