Gainesville elementary schools to have more security starting tomorrow

By

The Alachua County Sheriff’s Office and Gainesville Police Department will be greeting students, parents and teachers when public schools resume tomorrow.  In the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in Connecticut last month, local law enforcement will have officers stationed in each elementary school.  Florida’s 89.1 WUFT-FM’s Forrest Smith talked with Gainesville Police Information Officer Ben Tobias about meeting the concerns of parents about the safety of their children.
