Re: School SWAT Team: Texas School District Assembles Specially Trained Unit For Potential Threats
A Texas school district has assembled a SWAT team to bolster school safety, local NBC affiliate KVEO reports. The decision comes after the Dec. 14 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Following the Connecticut massacre, the Edinburg Consolidated Independent School District dispatched police officers to all its elementary schools in order to strengthen security.

Though the project, dubbed Operation Safeguard, was suspended in January after Edinburg CISD police chief Rick Perez announced schools were safe, the district decided to put together a special SWAT -- Special Weapons And Tactics -- unit to prepare for potential future threats.

According to school officials, the district's proximity to the United States-Mexico border was also a factor in the decision, ABC affiliate KRGV reports.
