FAIRFIELD, CT (WFSB) -
In the wake of the Newtown school shooting, school districts across Connecticut are taking a hard look at their security policies.
In Fairfield, officials are considering installing bulletproof glass areas in school lobbies and modeling them after the ones in the police department.
It is something most of us never imagined. But the reality of the shooting inside one of our elementary schools has every parent wondering, what if?
On Dec. 14, Adam Lanza, 20, shot and killed his mother while she slept at her home before he went to Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed 20 children and six adults. He killed himself as police made their way into the building.
One mother remembers the days right after the shooting tragedy when she went to her children's school and saw police doing security.
"Even though I don't agree with police at school, I was happy to see him there," said Nealum Ibraham. "I was happy when I drove up and saw the police car."
Fairfield police are looking at overhauling security in all 27 of the town's schools.
"I believe the visitor. No parent and no service people like UPS should go past the front desk area," said Fairfield Police Lt. James Perez. "There's no reason for them to do that."
Police have also suggested putting in tinted or reflective glass, so people entering the building cannot see what's inside. Officials are also considering adding camera systems and access control by card entry.
"Anything that is going to make the school safer," Ibraham said. "I would be in favor of that because these children are precious, small and innocent."
Fairfield plans to present all of its security recommendations later this year.
