It’s hard to believe that there are some politicians out there that want to eliminate SRO’s. The safety of our children is one of my highest priorities and I am committed to the preservation of this program.
As a Town Councilor, I worked with Chief Gary Tyler early in 1999 on the concept of having a School Resource Officer at South Windsor High. The initial reaction was tepid and then the Columbine School shooting happened on April 20, 1999. By August 1999, we had a “SRO” at the High School and since then we added an SRO at Timothy Edwards Middle School. The SRO Program has been a success in South Windsor.
