Basehor-Linwood district looking at adding school resource officer

This is a decision that should be made by the admin. Parents are not in the buildings and have no idea what kind of drama, substance, etc... are brought into the hallways of a high school. There are all kinds of things dealt with during the school year that most in the community never even hear about. An SRO can be a valuable commodity in "prevention" and also through "communication" with students. This is a "good" thing, not a bad thing. Basehor may not have the necessity "of the inner city schools", but there is a necessity. The fact that you want to avoid making the schools a safer place to be to avoid a student possibly being arrested is scary.
