New Fairfield to add officer for School Resource Office program

The New Fairfield School Safety and Security Committee appointed last year has made several recommendations, which are included in both the Town and School proposed budgets for the coming fiscal year.  The Board of Finance will review the proposals March 3rd. The plan includes a School Resource Officer in all four schools.  Prior to the Parkland shooting, New Fairfield had one SRO covering all 4 schools, and currently overtime pay is being used for officers, who have been in place since school started in August.  An additional full time officer will be hired to take pressure off the overtime hours worked by current officers.  The Committee has also recommended upgrading the camera systems currently in use in the schools to improve coverage and quality.
