Following up on our conversation “Reexamining Sex Offender Laws” – pegged off a vote taking place in Greenwich that would ban registered sex offenders at schools, parks, playgrounds and beaches in town. Last night the Representative Town Meeting decided to postpone the vote. This is the third time the proposal has stalled at the Greenwich RTM.
From Greenwich Time:
The motion to postpone came from the RTM’s health and human services committee. Its chairman, Karen Fassuliotis, District 7/North Center, said her committee believed it didn’t offer any extra safety for children and would be an additional burden on police.
“Child Safety Zones” have already been implemented in six Connecticut towns.
