Supt.: Tyl Middle Security Installation to be Expedited

Superintendent said a security company will install cameras, buzzer and monitoring .system at the school. Tyl's front doors open allowing anyone to step inside the building.


The front doors at Leonard J. Tyl Middle School are not security operated. But tomorrow they will be.

"I've informed staff and the Board of Education (of) our plan to add security to Tyl has been expedited," Schools Superintendent Pamela Aubin told Patch.

"Integrated Security will be installing the camera, monitor and buzzer system portion tomorrow morning at 7 a.m.," she said in an emailed statement in response to a Montville Patch question about the lack of a locking security mechanism at Tyl.

Aubin and other officials said that the plan to install security at the school was budgeted but planned for a later date. The events in Newtown Friday when a gunman forced his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School where he gunned down 20 first graders and six educators including the school principal changed those plans. 

And in addition to the security system planned, law enforcement will be seen throughout the district.

"We will have an increased presence from the Montville Police Department at all schools," Aubin added.

If they're going to spend the money on security are they going to put Bullet proof glass in or maybe bars so they can't be shot out? a buzzer and camera didn't do it for Sandy Hook.
