Arizona schools will be getting 118 school safety resource officers

Schools across the state of Arizona will be receiving 118 school safety resource officers after a joint committee at the State Legislature approved the funding for it on Thursday.

The School Safety Program Oversight Committee, co-chaired by Senate Education Committee Chair Kimberly Lee, agreed to spend almost $12 million in the upcoming school year on school safety programs to add the officers to 137 school sites across the state.

Along with adding officers to schools, the program also requires that students are taught the knowledge and skills pertaining to law, school safety and effective citizenship.

Lee believes it is essential to teach the importance of school safety and law to make schools a safe environment.

In addition to the 118 resource officers, three juvenile probation officers were also added. They will all be added to 32 districts at 137 school sites across Arizona.
