Increased Security, Police Presence, at Schools Around Country

Students returning to school in Los Angeles following winter break will find an increased police presence, following last month's mass shooting at an elementary school in Connecticut in which 26 people, including 20 young children, were killed.

CBS Station KCBS reports that The LAPD, the sheriff's department and other law enforcement agencies will add random daily patrols to more than 600 elementary and middle school campuses in the Los Angeles Unified School District, with officers expected to visit schools as many as three times a day. They will meet with principals, teachers and other school staff, and even parents.
