Retired Joliet Police Officer Has A Plan To Help Keep Schools Safe From Violence

Retired Joliet Police Officer Tony Nowak wants to bring back Project S.A.F.E School’s program that was eliminated in Joliet 2005 due to lack of funding following 9/11 attacks where all government funding was going to Homeland Security. Nowak, has the support of current Joliet Police Chief Bill Evans in bringing back officers in schools. Currently there is only one security guard who oversees Joliet District 86 schools.

Nowak believes, “having police officers assigned to schools is imperative to reducing mass shootings.”
