Brookfield Board of Ed puts off approval of hiring armed school security officers

Some members of the Brookfield Board of Education want more specifics on a proposal to add armed security at the schools, and an initial motion to fund the firing for 4 officers failed.  The district Superintendent and Police Chief have been asked to present information about cost, training protocols and best practices.  Brookfield police stepped up patrols after the shooting of 19 elementary school children and two teachers in Texas last month.  The Board of Education reestablished a security task force to look at security protocols.  The Board of Ed discussion followed a move by First Selectman Tara Carr asking the Board of Selectmen to earmark $600,000 in American Rescue Plan Act funding for ASSOs.  Members voting in favor said the pool of candidates lessens as they wait.
