After the shooting at Sandy Hook School, State Police formed a Critical Infrastructure Protection Unit, which was supposed to be a model for risk assessments. Any superintendent or principal could call that unit, and troopers would be sent out to conduct a safety assessment. Ohler says the unit was essentially defunct as of December 2016 when troopers were reassigned because of staffing shortages. He called it a disservice to the schools, which are trying to be proactive. But Ohler says a sergeant was assigned to the unit recently. That trooper is not trained however and was sent to Georgia to conduct a two week training class in order to be able to train other troopers to effectively do a school safety assessment.
