Proposal For State Money For School Security

by

Two Indiana officials want to set aside $10 million -- up to $50,000 for each district -- for grants to hire more school safety officers.

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller and state Sen. Pete Miller, R-Avon, said the grants would have to be matched evenly by local schools or law enforcement officials.

The two stressed that their proposal isn’t a comprehensive effort to stop slayings such as the one that took place in Newtown, Conn., in December, but that it could help.

Senate Bill 270 -- gives schools broad discretion to decide who should serve as safety officers and whether they should work for the schools or for local law enforcement officials.
