The public school and public safety partnerships conference brought more than 160 school administrators and law enforcement together to create a vision for preventing community violence that can affect schools.

The commonwealth's secretary of public safety admits those resources are limited in tough budget times. She says the state hopes to expand regional school crime prevention partnerships.
