Incoming Ind. Gov. Mike Pence to conduct review of school safety

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Incoming Gov. Mike Pence says he'll conduct a thorough review of safety at Indiana schools in response to the Newtown school shootings last week.

Pence ducked questions about whether he would consider limits on gun ownership in Indiana in the wake of the shooting. Instead, he said he'll put money in his first budget for a school safety review.

Pence talked about the review Wednesday as he announced new members of his growing administration. Pence said former Hamilton County Sheriff Doug Carter will become superintendent of the Indiana State Police

Current state police Superintendent Paul Whitesell withdrew his name from consideration in the Pence administration after telling a legislative panel last month he supported legalizing and taxing marijuana. A message seeking comment was left with a state police spokesman.
