Fairfield U. ensuring safety after Del. campus shooting

A shooting incident at Delaware State University Friday has security officials in southwestern Connecticut making sure they?re doing enough to keep students safe.

Security officials at Fairfield University have recently installed a computer program to instantly send out messages in case of an emergency. The program enables the school to alert its thousands of students at once on cell phones, PDAs and computers on campus.

"It's a good tool. It enables you to communicate quickly and efficiently,? Todd Pelazza of the school?s Department of Public Safety said.

Pelazza and his police officers hope they never have to use the computer system, but they say it is one more way they're keeping the campus safe.
