Iowa school district considers police officers
IOWA CITY (AP) — The Iowa City school district may consider putting armed police officers in high schools and junior high schools, though officials say they’ll weigh public input before making a final decision.
The Iowa City Community School District said it’s been talking with local law enforcement about adding school resource officers, the Iowa City Press-Citizen reported. They would be employed by the Iowa City Police Department but work extensively with the schools.
“We certainly would want to have a role in the interview process for an officer — find someone who has an interest in and ability to interact with students on our campuses,” said Superintendent Steve Murley.
