FARMINGTON - Gov. Dannel Malloy announced today another $15 million will go to help improve school security across the state.

He says the grants will help an additional 75 school districts pay for things like surveillance cameras, auto-locking doors and security officers.

The governor said an additional round of grants is expected to be announced next month.

The money comes nearly a year after the school shootings in Newtown that left 20 students and six educators dead.
