Col. Mike Edmonson tells 99.5FM most state schools already have solid security plans in place to handle emergencies
State Police Commander, Colonel Mike Edmonson, says as he visits schools around the state to assess their security plans in the aftermath of the school massacre in Connecticut last December, he finds most schools are already doing the things he would recommend they do to maintain safety on campus.
Edmonson, co-chair of a state school security task force, says he recommends all schools have a safety plan in place to handle emergencies, and practice it.
"Having drills from time to time throughout the school to know exactly, the teachers know exactly what to do, the students know exactly what to do," Edmonson said.
Edmonson says he has no plans to push legislation on school security this year, that he has not seen from his tour of schools any big problems with security.
"I've not seen one location where I can say the kids are just not safe," Edmonson said.
