BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -
The Bossier Parish School board voted Thursday to approve a recommendation to add armed sheriff's deputies to elementary schools.
Four additional resource officers will be added to the district to rotate between all of the elementary school campuses.
This vote comes on the same day that Superintendent D.C. Machen and Bossier Security Director Capt. Danny Dison went to Baton Rouge to lay out upcoming district security plans to lawmakers.
"It's not an easy task to be director of security in this time and day that we are living in," says Capt. Danny Dison. Dison spoke to parents at the school board meeting about the trip to the capitol.
"It would put a lot of parent's minds at ease," says Bossier parent and teacher Heather Nugent.
Currently, there are 13 resource officers in the middle and high schools throughout Bossier Parish, costing the school district more than a million dollars.
The four additional officers will cost the district $65,000 for the remainder of this year. This money is expected to come from the school district's general fund.
But Superintendent D.C. Machen says that the school district would like to have more than 20 officers by next year on school campuses. This plan could cost the district more than $2 million, but he says it is still not clear where that money will come from.
