Gov Mike Pence
Gov Mike Pence

Indiana Governor Mike Pence has signed a bill that will help Indiana schools hire more school resource officers.The measure would provide $50,000 grants for school districts to hire the officers to act as guards. 

The bill also sets up a legislative study committee to look at arming staff and volunteers in schools. VigoCounty, The City of Terre Haute and VigoCountySchools have already teamed up to split the cost of having armed officers in every VigoCountySchool.

 No word yet on if this might mean that some of the cost will soon be covered by the state.
