The President of Western Connecticut State University has sent out a letter to students and staff letting them know that there will be a greater police presence on the two campuses in response to yesterday's shooting at a community college in Oregon. West Conn spokesman Paul Steinmetz says the university community is being asked that if something suspicious is seen, police are called.
The university Police Department is communicating with police and other protective agencies in the region to make sure the two campuses are secure and safe. West Conn President Dr John Clark says more information will be communicated as warranted.
Some WCSU officers from the overnight shift continued to work through the morning. Steinmetz says they wanted to make sure that there were enough officers available to talk to anyone who might have questions or concerns.
