Commission OKs more school officers

(Continued)

Planning for fall

Approving the measure in early April likely will allow the Sheriff’s Department and school system to have the new officers in place when the 2013-14 school year begins in August, Sisk said.

The Sheriff’s Department requires all SROs to have up-to-date certification from the Alabama Police Officers Standards and Training and the National Association of School Resource Officers.

Chief Deputy Randy King said some retired officers would need APOST recertification, and that all of the new officers would be required to complete 40 hours of SRO training.
