Gov. Edwards wants officers at every school

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Gov. John Bel Edwards says he wants officers stationed at every school in Louisiana.

He made the statement during a School Safety Commission meeting Wednesday.

Bills aimed at arming teachers or civilians on campus have already failed.

Edwards said he was against that bill, but would be in favor of trained law enforcement officers protecting schools.
