SAN DIEGO — Mayor Bob Filner met with police, school and community leaders Monday to talk about local school safety in the wake of Friday’s school shooting tragedy in Connecticut.
Among those attending the morning session were Police Chief William Lansdowne and San Diego city schools Superintendent Bill Kowba and board President John Lee Evans.
“I really applaud the mayor for bringing us all together,” Lansdowne told FOX5 before the meeting. “We’ve talked over the weekend. We’re going to have a meeting at 9:45 a.m. Well make a public announcement on what we are doing in the city of San Diego to prevent a tragedy like this from occurring and make our kids safe.”
The meeting also included county Mental Health Director Alfredo Aguirre and other mental health professionals.
