New Haven Police in the Schools

The New Haven School District and Police Department are looking at designating an office at the high school as a police substation. The substation will be used by police officers to do paperwork but also create a police presence in the school. New Haven Police Chief John Sheible says in the past they have looked into bringing a Student Resource Officer into the school but it would just cost too much. Like most area police departments, New Haven has been reviewing safety procedures in the schools and recently ran an intruder drill at the elementary school. Chief Sheible says police are often making visits to the schools but the substation would be a more cost effective way to have an armed presence in the school for a longer period of time.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.
