SINCE THE TRAGEDY IN 2012. AND THIS YEAR, ALONE, THERE HAVE BEEN MORE THAN 40 SHOOTINGS AT AMERICAN SCHOOLS. COLLEGE CAMPUSES ARE GETTING A DOUBLE TAKE. MIDDLESEX COMMUNITY COLLEGE HAS PLANS IN PLACE TO REACT TO A POTENTIAL THREAT. WE HAVE TEAM COVERAGE TONIGHT LIVE. Reporter: THE MIDDLESEX COMMUNITY COLLEGE ARE JUST A FEW MONTHS AWAY — JUST A BIT AWAY FROM THE POLICE DEPARTMENT BUT THEY STILL CHECK THEMSELVES ON KEEPING STAFF AND STUDENTS SAFE. OH MY GOD. THERE’S A GUY SHOOTING PEOPLE. THE THOUGHT OF IT IS VERY FRIGHTENING. SHE HAS MORE THAN CLASSES ON HER MIND AS SHE RISES — AS SHE RUSHES TO STUDY. NOBODY IS IMMUNE FROM IT TOOK HERE, THEY HAVE AN ARMED POLICE OFFICER WHO ACTS AS A CAMPUS POLICE OFFICER. COLLEGE STAFF STAYS ACTIVELY INVOLVED. WE GET FLAGGED IF THERE ARE ANY KIND OF DISTURBING WRITINGS OR IF THERE IS SOMETHING A TEACHER DOES NOT CARE ABOUT IN A CLASSROOM, THEY FILE THESE REPORTS. AND WE HAVE A COMPUTER PROGRAM THAT TAKES THAT INFORMATION. THE VIRGINIA TECH MASSACRE PROMPTED SECURITY CHANGES AT MANY SCHOOLS. MIDDLESEX PUT IN AN EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT TEAM. THEY HAVE HELD ACTIVE SHOOTER DRILLS. IT IS ALWAYS IN THE BACK OF YOUR MIND BUT YOU NEVER THINK TOO MUCH ABOUT IT.
