Norman Whaley, Ellenwood: “I think it’s good to give extra security for the students and teachers and parents. I don’t see it as a problem, I have seen officers in the buildings and it’s been a big help.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Monique Pyron, Conley: “I think they should [have officers in schools]. Based on the past events of kids bringing guns to schools, they need to have someone there to protect the children.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Tasha Browner, Decatur: “I think it’s unnecessary. I feel like there shouldn’t be any armed forces in the schools. I feel like there should be better disciplinary actions and that teachers should pay more attention to what’s happening with the students.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Courtney Jones, Forest Park: “It’s a good idea. I think if the officers are present they will be able to make the school more safe, not just the students from each other but from outsiders in the community.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
