Jefferson Co. commission to vote on proposal for more SROs at schools

Posted:

DANDRIDGE (WATE) - A local school system could be adding more student resource officers to its schools at the start of the next school year.

Jefferson County commissioners are set to vote on the school system's request to add SROs at each of its six elementary schools and its new Freshman Academy.

The school system made the request earlier this year and the commission's budget committee has already approved the proposal.

The full commission is set to vote on the recommendation at its meeting next week.

The cost of adding the deputies is estimated at nearly $250,000 per year.
