Safety Law News for June 20, 2018

In Indiana, the Zionsville Town Council passed a budget appropriation to cover the cost of adding full-time school resource officers at every campus in the district, including elementary and middle schools. 

In Arkansas, legislation has been introduced that would tap into the state's $151 million surplus to fund a full-time school resource officer on every public school campus.  The proposal requires the SRO to be a certified law enforcement officer and pass the same training required of a commissioned school security officer. 

In Wisconsin, the Green Bay School Board voted unanimously to reject a proposal to put armed guards in its schools.  The preference of the Board is to provide social workers and guidance counselors to help kids before a crisis arises. 

In Virginia, the Governor announced the School Security Officer Incentive Grant Program.  $1.26 million will be provided to fund school resource officers in state schools.
