Eanes ISD to create school police department to boost safety, security | #schoolsaftey

The Eanes school district will create a school police department that will place a resource officer at all nine of its campuses west of Austin, school board members decided Tuesday.

The program comes weeks after the Legislature passed a bill requiring armed personnel on every school campus, but Eanes district leaders said this program had been in the works for months.

The district approved the $1.6 million program during a Tuesday night board meeting, though school board members can’t give final approval until they vote on the budget at the end of the month, Superintendent Jeff Arnett said.

The district already employs two safety and security directors with former police experience who will join the new department of 11 people, Arnett said.
