Armed security officers are now strolling the hallways in the Indian River School District.

The move follows the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown last year.

Most of them are former Delaware State troopers and will be present every minute of the school day at the 14 facilities in the district.

But there are some that don’t feel comfortable with guns being carried in the schools.

Billy Windgate of Selbyville told WBOC that that he does not believe firearms belong on school grounds.

The Indian River School District is the first in Sussex County to have a dedicated task force of armed officers on school grounds.
