School officials throughout Minnesota are taking a closer look at safety protocols in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings in Connecticut. Officials with the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension note that it's one thing to have emergency plans in place, and another to practice them consistently so that when a lockdown is called for, staff, students and others know how to react. Wade Setter, of the BCA, said it's likely the lockdown enacted at Sandy Hook saved many lives.
