Schools in New Jersey will face surprise security inspections in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting.
 
The Education Department's Preparedness and Emergency Planning Office wants to ensure schools can conduct lockdown drills.

  The state requires schools to hold a lockdown drill as well as a shooting drill twice per year.
 
Administrators will also receive additional safety training.
 
Police officers were stationed at some schools in New Jersey after a gunman killed 20 students and six educators at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in December.
