I crusaded for ten years prior to the tragedy at Sandy Hook to have law enforcement officers assigned to all of our North Haven schools. The town of North Haven refused to assign law enforcement officers to the elementary and middle schools despite the many school children's lives lost prior to and post Sandy Hook.

The town of North Haven could no longer deny my advocacy for school security and finally assigned officers to the elementary and middle schools nearly six years after Sandy Hook.
