Iowa district nixes armed officers in schools
IOWA CITY (AP) — Plans for armed police officers in Iowa City schools have been put on hold.
The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports that the Iowa City School Board voted unanimously Tuesday night not to pursue a federal grant that would partially fund two school resource officers for four years.
Board members say that decision was driven by the high cost — $400,000 over four years — and a lack of clear community support.
