Sheriff: School security needs beefing up

January 5th, 2013 in News

Speaking to a group of Rotarians on Friday, Cole County Sheriff Greg White laid out a three-pronged approach - including a proposal to arm some educators as "designated shooters" - that he believes would beef up security in the area's schools.

White noted that school boards already have the capacity, under state law, to allow people to carry concealed weapons onto school campuses.

"That's not necessarily my recommendation," he said.
