Malloy's Newtown panel hoping for national impact

Posted: Updated:

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Members of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's panel charged with reviewing school safety, mental health and public safety following the Newtown school massacre say they want their final report to have national significance.

Robert Ducibella, a member of the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission and a security consultant, said Friday he feels the group has a responsibility to broaden its recommendations beyond the Dec. 14 shooting in Connecticut and craft a report that's meaningful to other states as well.

Recommendations made by a similar group following the 1999 shootings at Columbine High School in Colorado led to changes in how police handle active shooter incidents.

Malloy's commission, which includes experts from varied fields, is expected to present a final package of recommendations near the end of this year or early next year.
