    Armed Guards At Schools aka Resource Officers

    In our town we have police officers at all middle and High Schools- the elementary schools are clustered with the middle schools.

    This is from the Salt Lake Tribune.

    "Atlanta • A student opened fire at his middle school Thursday afternoon, wounding a 14-year-old in the neck before an armed officer working at the school was able to get the gun away, police said.

    Multiple shots were fired in the courtyard of Price Middle School just south of downtown around 1:50 p.m. and the one boy was hit, Atlanta Police Chief George Turner said. In the aftermath, a teacher received minor cuts, he said."

    The interesting thing for our community is that the armed resource officers blend in and are just part of daily school life. But them just being there reduces fighting and kids driving live idiots at least on campus.
