Schools in Brooklyn, need to change habits when it comes to school security rather than invest in new equipment, the Norwich Bulletin reports, citing a recent State Police security assessment.
A state police unit that reviews security of schools assessed facilities and noted problems, including doors and windows that were left propped open, the Bulletin reports.
“We need to think about how much we can do by just changing the habits of people and getting everyone to look at the issue with a different point of view than they did previously,” Supt. Louise Berry told the Bulletin. “Equipment might be helpful, but that would not be the first step.”
The superintendent will put together a ereport based on the findings.
