NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut company says it has nearly finished installing state-of-the-art security equipment at a school to which students moved after the deadly Newtown elementary school shooting.

Thomas Marino Jr.'s father owns Advanced Security Technologies in Stratford. He says he reached out to manufacturers after the Dec. 14 Newtown massacre to ask whether they'd donate equipment if his father's company contributed the labor to install it at the school in Monroe.

He said Friday he's collected hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of equipment. It's enough to outfit the Monroe school with technology ranging from an intrusion detection system to a panic alarm and equip Newtown's five other schools.

The Newtown Board of Education voted Thursday to accept 30 cameras, the final step at the Monroe school.

Twenty first-graders and six school administrators died in the Newtown massacre.
