US Schools Recruit Private Security Officers to Boost Security after Mass
Shooting Incident in Newtown School

After the mass shooting incident at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., schools in the US are taking special measures to increase security. As a reaction to the Newtown incident, most of the US districts opted for the services of private security officers and also took the initiative of arming teachers. The schools multiplied the number of "school resource officers," or in simple terms, police officers who have received special training to work in association with students.

News sources disclose that the US Congress has been unable to alter federal gun laws after the Newtown slaughter. As a result, the schools are facing increased anxiety from teachers as well as parents to ensure the safety of students.
