Joe Baker, president of the South Merrick Community Civic Association, made a statement to the Merrick Board of Education on school security.

He said in an interview after the meeting that the push from “Merrick SOS” for school guards is an “emotional reaction after Sandy Hook.” “Hiring a guard won’t achieve anything.” Barber said. “There is no credible threat here. This is just for peace of mind.”
