Montgomery Posts School Resources Officers at Every High School

As reported in the Washington Post, police will be posted in all 25 Montgomery County high schools next fall as county leaders bolstered the schools’ security force in a final budget approved last week.

The addition of the officers, expected to start when the next school year begins, goes a long way toward restoring a program that was slashed amid recession-driven budget cuts in recent years.

“It’s been a long time since we had an SRO in every high school,” said Montgomery County Council President Craig Rice. “I think we have a great framework for a strong program.”

Council President Craig Rice serves as Chair of MACo’s Education Subcommittee.
