GREENEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Greeneville City School officials said they are increasing the number of police officers at their schools to reinforce security and address concerns after the deadly massacre of elementary school students in Connecticut.
The Greeneville Sun reports that Director of Schools Linda Stroud announced Wednesday that each of the six schools will have a full-time police officer throughout the day when school resumes next week.
Previously only Greeneville High School had a full-time police officer while a second officer rotated patrols among the middle school and four elementary schools. Stroud said in a statement that she was appreciative to the city and the police department for their commitment to the safety of the students.
Twenty students and six adults died in the Dec. 14 shooting at a Newtown, Conn., school.
