Governor says police hold key to school safety

Posted: Updated:

  Governor Robert Bentley says he believes the ultimate solution to the school safety issue rests with law enforcement.

The governor Monday addressed the opening session of a two-day seminar on school safety at a Montgomery hotel. Bentley, legislators and education officials have been discussing how to keep schools safe since the December shootings at a Connecticut elementary school.

A number of proposals have been made to deal with the school safety issue, but Bentley says he wants law enforcement officers to have a say in the final solution. Bentley says that doesn't mean there would have to be a police officer in every school.
The governor says it is going to take people working together to come up with a solution to the problem.
