Belchertown Police To Patrol Schools Monday

police lightsBELCHERTOWN, Mass. (WGGB) -Starting tomorrow, there will be additional police presence at Belchertown’s Public Schools. According to Chief Francis Fox, officers will be there at the beginning and the end of the school day.  The officers will not go into the schools, but will do patrols outside throughout the day. Chief Fox says he’s doing this to give parents and students “presence and peace of mind”, after Friday’s tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, and that he “takes these things very seriously.”

There has already been an officer assigned to the school district for 12 years.

Chief Fox says the patrols will continue until further notice.
