(Wyo.)-Task Force Looking At Wyo School Security Issues
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A task force studying Wyoming school security is focusing on police officers in schools, security vulnerabilities in school buildings and training for police and educators.
The task force has three months to submit a report to Gov. Matt Mead. The report will then be given to the Legislature's Select Committee on Education Accountability in October for possible use in a bill.
Police assigned to schools, known as school resource officers, have been widely discussed. Wyoming currently has only 35 resource officers statewide.
The Legislature this year killed a bill that would have allocated $2.3 million to provide one resource officer per 1,000 students. Lawmakers said they wanted a study of the issue first.
