Connecticut public hearing to be held on school security
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The first of four public hearings being held by a legislative task force on gun violence and children's safety is being held at Connecticut's Legislative Office Building.
Members of the school security working group are holding the hearing on Friday morning, starting at 9:30 a.m.
The group is accepting testimony on school security concerns and ideas for improving school security following the Dec. 14 shooting at Newtown's Sandy Hook Elementary School, which left 20 first graders and six educators dead.
The task force's subcommittee on gun violence prevention is holding its public hearing at the LOB on Monday, while the mental health subcommittee will hear from the public on Tuesday. The full 52-member task force plans to hold a public hearing at Newtown High School on Wednesday evening.
