NEW LONDON, WI (WTAQ) - Officials at schools in the New London District say they have an extra layer of security after a fundraising program.
The $16,000 raised has been used to buy 13 new police radios.
Every public and private school in the district has at least one radio which can be used to notify police in an emergency.
New London police say they don’t want to delay their response – even by 30 seconds. Officials say the eight schools in the district are now prepared.
Fundraising started last January, shortly after the mass shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.
