More armed security at schools after Newtown

download (12)MIAMI (AP) — Students returning to school this fall are being greeted not only by their teachers and principal. At a growing number of schools they’re also meeting the armed school resource officer who will be stationed permanently on campus.

Local officials in many areas have decided to place security officers at schools this year, after a gunman last year killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn. In a few cases, they’re also allowing teachers to carry concealed weapons themselves.

The National Conference of State Legislatures says lawmakers in every state introduced school safety legislation this year and in at least 20 states the proposals became law.

The National Association of School Resource Officers says it has trained twice as many new officers as last year.
