Request For School Resource Officers
Updated: Tuesday, February 5 2013, 06:33 PM EST
Jackson County school officials want to put resource officers in every one of its schools.
There are three officers right now covering the high school, but school leaders will ask for four more to cover the county's four elementary schools.
In the aftermath of the shooting in Connecticut, that would put “SRO’s” in all of the public schools in the county.
The additional four officers would come with an upfront cost of more than $317,000.
The request for the additional officers will be made to the County Board of Commissioners.
