Will the job include training in yelling “oh, shit” and “run away!”, along with how to dial 911?
(WRAL) The Wake County Board of Education is expected to vote Tuesday on a proposal to put one unarmed security guard at each of the district’s 105 elementary schools.
If approved, the measure would cost $835,000 for three months or nearly $2.4 million for a year for a contract with AlliedBarton Security Services. The company already provides security for some of the schools in the district.
Look, I’m not disparaging the folks who work for AlliedBarton, it just seems silly to pony up $2.4 million for security that won’t be able to stop an armed maniac.
“We’re trying to take some proactive steps to keep our schools safe,” he said. “There aren’t any threats being posed, but we have some issues around access with some of our elementary schools. They are not covered in the same way as our middle and high schools.”
Sounds more like the Democrat majority on the Board are trying to show that they are “Doing Something.” The vote is at 330pm today.
