Anastasio Speaks Out Against Cutting Beecher’s SRO

Tony Anastasio, the Republican endorsed candidate for First Selectman, and his team are speaking out against the proposal to cut the Beecher Road School’s Resource (Police) Officer (SRO), which was discussed by the Board of Finance earlier this month.  “Maintaining a safe and secure environment at Beecher Road School is paramount,” said Tony Anastasio.  “Cutting the SRO position this late in the budget process, where there has been very little discussion of the rationale, insufficient public input, and with no direction from the BOS, is a bad idea.  We do not support this cut.”

Anastasio continued to state, “The safety of children is something we take very seriously.  That’s why we recently made an investment in necessary security enhancements at Beecher.  Our next step should be to analyze the overall personnel structure of the Police Department and create a school security strategy, including input from the community.  If it is determined that the on-campus SRO presence is required within our security strategy, then it must remain in the budget.”
