House lawmakers seek federal money for more school police officers
from Education Week
House lawmakers on Capitol Hill have introduced legislation that would direct more federal funds to pay the cost of police officers working in schools. The School Resource Officer Act, introduced by Rep. Paul Mitchell, R-Mich., would authorize $300 million in funding for Community Oriented Policing Services grants, compared to current appropriations of $225 million and require 30 percent of COPS hiring funds to pay for school resource officers' salaries and benefits.
