In reaction to this morning's deadly school shooting in Newtown, CT, Port Chester police officers will be stationed at each Port Chester elementary school at dismissal time today.
Port Chester Police Chief Joseph Krzeminski said he too will be visiting the elementary schools as a precaution.
Reports from Newtown, CT, say that 27 people have been killed in this morning's shootings at Sany Hook Elementary School — with 18 children believed to have been killed.
Krzeminski said there are no threats against any schools or any reason to suspect anyone in Port Chester is in danger. Instead, he said this afternoon's effort is designed to make local residents feel safe and reduce fears as a result of the Newtown shooting.
Port Chester police officers are expected to be at Port Chester schools from about 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.
