Manchester College President Seeks Armed Police
MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) — The president of Manchester Community College is again questioning a state ban on armed campus police just days after a lockdown when a student reported seeing a man with what she believed was a gun in his waistband.
The Journal Inquirer of Manchester reported that college President Gena Glickman joined police chiefs from the University of Connecticut and Central Connecticut State University to make the case to the legislature for stronger police forces, better planning and regular training on college campuses.
Glickman is seeking to change state policy banning guns on the Manchester Community College campus, even for police. She’s won support from the Manchester Police Department and state police.
Glickman’s request is before the Board of Regents. She hopes it will be approved after a security study of each community college.
