Connecticut Sets Standards for Armed Campus PoliceOctober 27, 2016 |
by The Associated Press
HARTFORD >> The state board that oversees community colleges in Connecticut has approved a process for community colleges to form armed police forces on campus.
The Hartford Courant reports the action by the Board of Regents for Higher Education follows passage of a bill by the General Assembly earlier this year that opens the door for officers at all 12 community colleges in the state to carry guns.
Currently, only Naugatuck Community College has armed officers.
