Poland schools revisit hiring resource officer



Published: Mon, December 17, 2012 @ 10:05 p.m.

POLAND — The massacre of 20 children and six adults Friday in Newtown, Conn., was

uppermost in the minds of officials, parents and administrators at tonight’s Poland school board meeting.

Starting with a moment of silence to remember the victims and the flag lowered to half-staff in front of the building, the school board heard from township Trustee Eric Ungaro, who implored the board to reconsider having a school-resource officer.

Ungaro campaigned on the issue when he ran for trustee. In February, the school board and township came to an agreement to allow a township police officer to make periodic rounds at the high school as part of a regular beat.

“This isn’t a knee-jerk reaction,” Ungaro said. “This is something we’ve been talking about for a long time. ... We’re going to do whatever we can to make it work.”

They might be the only school system in Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana Counties that does not have a cop in the school. They really dont need one?

Zedaker was afraid of Divito and Bair. Good for Green and Stacy to vote common sence. You have a problem with the officer - address it and make a change don't put the children in harms way.

What are you going to do, put a cop in all schools at all the doors? Next, some lunatic will shoot up a bus; what then, put a cop on every school bus?

Because of this horrible incident you cannot barricade yourself to safety.
