Entry Description
STATEHOUSE (April 26, 2012) — State Sen. Pete Miller’s (R-Avon) legislation to increase school security received final legislative approval today and now heads to the governor’s desk for consideration.

Miller said Senate Bill 1 establishes a grant program to provide funding for school resource officers (SROs) whose primary duty is to protect schools from external dangers. Schools that apply for the grants would receive matching state funds of up to $50,000 to hire an SRO.

“The new grant program for School Resource Officers represents a big step forward in keeping our schools safe,” Miller said. “I’m grateful for all the input and assistance I received from fellow legislators and constituents on this bill. I think Hoosiers will agree that these are dollars well spent.”
