According to a report in the Record-Journal, Superintendent Mark D. Benigni said surveillance cameras and buzz-in entry systems will be added to all city schools. The decision comes following the massacre that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown last Friday, killing 26.
The tragedy brought the topic of school safety to the forefront of discussion as community leaders and officials in Meriden and across the country weigh options, states the report.
The entry and camera systems will be added over the upcoming holiday vacation, and could cost close to $100,000. Click here to read the full report in the Record-Journal.
