Police Drill in Our School

If you saw lots of police activity at the Assumption  School  on Thursday, April 14, 2011 or heard some pretty scary chatter over the scanner this morning, fear not. It was the Perth Amboy City Police Department conducting a disaster drill that simulated a gunman in the halls of a school. The exercise was coordinated so emergency services officials can be prepared for the worst and was not in response to any particular incident. The school Principle Mr. Michael Szpyhulsky said that the drill went well and that the school learned a lot.  “The students all cooperated and the drill was quite a success,” he  said. “We are a safer school today.”
