newtownEVERETT — In the wake of the deadly school shooting in Connecticut, Everett Police Department School Resource Officers said they’ll do their best to protect students in the event of an emergency.

In a letter sent to parents, the department’s officers said mass shootings, like the one in Newtown, Conn., could happen anywhere, but they are trained to prevent them.

“It is a great honor and privilege to be entrusted with the safety of our most valuable and precious asset — our children,” the letter said.

“We cannot promise to prevent all acts of violence. But, if the unimaginable does happen — we promise not to retreat, to take the fight to the bad guy and do everything within our power to stop anyone from hurting our children.”
