WASHINGTON—Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy will be a keynote speaker at the Security Industry Association’s Government Summit, to be held here June 4-5 at the W hotel.

In the wake of the Dec. 14, 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., Malloy led the formation of the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission, a 16-member group tasked with making specific, actionable recommendations in the areas of school security, mental health services and gun violence prevention.

An interim report from the commission includes recommendations on minimum classroom security standards, threat and risk assessment, emergency response standards, identification, training and refunding of the Safe and Drug Free Schools Program, according to a SIA statement.

The early registration deadline for the summit has been extended to May 10. Attendees who register before the deadline will save $200 off the regular registration price.
