Centreville schools consider adding school-resource officer

Centreville Public Schools is considering the addition of a school-resource officer.

During Monday’s board of education meeting, superintendent Chad Brady said the concept is in its infancy but a proposal worth exploring.

Brady said it is his opinion that at least one school-resource officer should be a standard position in every school district, no matter its size.

He said a school-resource officer in Centreville would not only provide a visual presence and fulfill security-related obligations, but serve in other capacities such as overseeing attendance- and truancy-related matters, and emergency-operation planning.

Board members gave Brady the green light to continue pursuing the idea and urged him to report back once he had a sufficient amount of information. Brady said he would provide an update at the board’s March 11 meeting.
