Certainly, replacing the city police officers and the county sheriff
deputies in our public schools with armed private security officers
would save tons of money. I'd like to point out in regards to a very
unfair statement made by both a school board member and a county commissioner that alot of the private sector armed officers are retired police officers, retired military police officers, and some
are presently NC state corrections officers. The statement made was
that private security companies would be unfit and not qualified to
work in the public schools. This is pure hog wash and only displays
the fact that the two aforementioned public elected figures have not
done their homework. In many cases, some of these private sector
armed officers have even more training then their public sector counter parts. I think the school system should really consider the
use of private security companies to give these law enforcement
agencies a break not to mention the taxpayer as well.
Thank You,
