Norfolk Public School Board of Education approves contract for student resource officer
NORFOLK, Neb. (KTIV/US92) -
The Norfolk Public School Board of
Education approved a new contract with the City of Norfolk Monday for their
student resource officer. The officer works for the city as a police
officer but will be stationed at the high school; interacting with students
and trying to keep troubled teens from turning to crime.
Norfolk has had
an SRO for ten years but until this year he'd been stationed at Norfolk
Junior High. However, school officials say that with ninth graders
now attending the high school, more students in that building could benefit
from the SRO's presence. Officials did say they'll be evaluating early in the
school year how the new arrangement is working for everyone involved.
Both the school district and city will be sharing the cost of the contract
approved last night.
