The Moniteau County R-1 School board and the California Board of Aldermen have created separate committees to create a full-time job for a school resource officer.

The position’s workload likely will be divided 75 percent school and 25 percent city; the cost of salary, uniform, gear, benefits and expenses would be divided 75-25 between school and city, as well, Superintendent Dwight Sanders said. The total cost is expected to be $35,000-40,000 annually.

A memorandum of understanding has been prepared by the school board and given to the city committee for review. The committees will review revisions.

The hope is for the MOU to be approved at the city’s September board meeting.

In the meantime, the school board also will design expectations and evaluation measures, which will help the city in the hiring and retention process.

The position requires a minimum of two years of law enforcement experience. The school will send the officer to in-state training.
