School safety initiative garners attention of Sandy Hook group
Norcross suggested placing older, unused police radios in each of the district’s schools so the schools would have immediate and direct contact with police in the event of a potential shooting or other emergency.
School officials approved the use of the old police radios in the schools. Norcross helped draft a protocol for their use and helped program them so they would be easy for the school officials to use.
Norcross said this gives the schools the ability to listen into what is going on with the police department and hear if there are any potential issues in the community.
In April, Norcross met with Michelle Gay, one of the founders of Safe and Sound Securing Our Schools: A Sandy Hook Initiative, and shared the Salem initiative. Gay is the mother of Josephine Grace, one of the victims of the shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.
Gay said she loved the idea of having police radios in the schools and asked to share it on her website, safeandsoundschools.org.
