HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The Connecticut governor's chief of staff has asked state police to be more selective about where they discuss the Newtown school shooting.
Gov. Dannel Malloy's spokesman Andrew Doba said Wednesday that Chief of Staff Mark Ojakian recently asked state police to "take a deliberative approach" when deciding whether to attend law enforcement conferences and discuss the December massacre of 20 first-graders and six educators.
Earlier this year, the governor and state lawmakers expressed frustration after learning that the state police commander discussed the shootings at a New Orleans seminar while police back home were releasing few details.
Ojakian's request was first reported by The Hartford Courant. The newspaper reported Tuesday that police officials canceled speeches about the school shooting scheduled for this week.
A full report on the investigation is expected in the fall.
