Enfield will receive funding in reimbursement of school security upgrades the state announced Wednesday.
The reimbursement will come as a portion if $5 million awarded to 169 schools in the state, and will cover between 20-80 percent of costs associated with security infrastructure improvements made in the wake of the Sandy Hook Tragedy on Dec. 14, 2012.
"Funding allows districts with the most need to implement modern security measures that will make schools safer," Gov. Dannel Malloy said, adding that while every random act of violence cannot be stopped, steps can be made to ensure Connecticut's "children and our teachers are as safe as possible."
The level of reimbursement is based on town wealth, the state said.
