School officials in New Haven, Connecticut, are pushing back on demands that police officers be removed from city schools.

The demand for the removal of the school resource officers came from New Haven student activists during recent protests against police brutality following the death of George Floyd.

The New Haven Board of Education president says she’s not prepared to take any action before the school board discusses the issue and takes a vote.

The school resource officers work in New Haven schools under an agreement between the school district and the city police department.
