(WSYR-TV) — A police officer will be assigned to the Jamesville-DeWitt School District at least through the end of the year.
There’s been a lot of controversy about police in schools since the death of George Floyd. In August, the Jamesville-DeWitt School Board voted to cut the position.
A petition that circulated garnered 1,000 signatures calling to restore the school resource officer.
Another school board vote happened on Monday night, temporarily restoring the position for the fall.
A task force will recommend whether Jamesville-DeWitt should keep an in-school police officer for the district.
