Paterson NJ BOE looks to expand in-house school security staff | #schoolsaftey

PATERSON — The Board of Education is looking to increase its in-house school security staff, while cutting the use of guards provided by a private vendor, officials said Tuesday.

The school board last week changed its private security company as it approved an $8.2 million contract with Allied/Universal Security Services for the upcoming year. Allied/Universal replaces Arrow Security, which officials said decided to cancel what had been an $8.58 million contract with the district.

Under the new contract, officials said, there will be changes in the number of private security guards being used and in how they will be deployed in city schools. But officials declined to provide details on the changes, citing “security concerns.”
