NEW ALBANY —

The schools have already gone through intruder drills with Jeffersonville Police officers to see how the schools would respond in an emergency.

“Our department has met with school administrators to brainstorm ways to improve safety,” Chris Grimm Jeffersonville Police chief, said in a release. “They have been very receptive to our suggestions. Several measures have already been taken that are tightening up security at school buildings.”

Jeffersonville mayor Mike Moore said in a release that child safety is one of the community’s biggest duties.

“It’s important that we continue to have a strong partnership with our schools,” Moore said. “Parents deserve to know that their children are safe. The city is supporting the school system by providing them the resources necessary to improve safety. We have an obligation to keep our schoolchildren safe.”
