Perry County Adds School Resource Officers

More school resource officers will be coming to Perry County Schools.Previously, the school had four officers, one covered for by the school, one taken care of by the sheriff’s office and two covered by the fiscal court.This year, the school system received a Title IV grant allowing the hiring of more. Perry County Schools Superintendent Jonathan Jett says school resource officers can easily diffuse many situations. Sheriff-elect Joe Engle says it also gives students a chance to personally know law enforcement workers.
