Safe Schools Partnership, St. Louis County Police will Meet
This police-only, internal meeting is being called to discuss what changes in security that school districts leaders would suggest, as everyone processes and works through the tragedy that occurred Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Due to the recent event in Connecticut, St. Louis County Police Department officers and members of the Safe Schools Partnership just announced Tuesday morning they will be meeting this Thursday at 9 a.m.
Safe Schools Partnership of St. Louis County was launched during the 1998-1999 school year. It is a collaborative agreement between the county police department, area police departments, school districts, and other concerned agencies, with the sole goal of assuring safety for children.
The meeting—which is for officers only—will be held at the Parkway School District Instructional Services Center.

Vaughn said an invitation also was extended to bordering municipal police departments' personnel.
