BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- With school back in session in the Park City, Bridgeport Police School Resource Officers will be ensuring kids safely get to and from school in neighborhoods throughout the city.

This effort is a part of the city’s "Safe Corridors" program.

“The Safe Corridors program helps keeps our students safe inside and outside of school, which we know will have an impact on their performance in the classroom. Feeling secure at school is a catalyst for learning, creativity, and community building.” said Mayor Bill Finch in a press release.

“I applaud the school resource officers and community volunteers involved in this program. Their dedication and support is critical to keeping our kids safe.”

The program was developed jointly by the school board and police department. The program creates blocks-long perimeters around Bridgeport schools that will be marked and monitored by police, trained volunteers and cameras.
