The addition of armed officers to all Warren County schools is one of the ideas being discussed to increase security in the wake of the Connecticut school shootings.“There is the discussion of having school resource officers in all school buildings,” said Director of Schools Bobby Cox, who revealed roundtable discussions with school leaders are scheduled for Jan. 8. “Then there’s the possibility of having retired law enforcement officers to provide a full-time presence at the schools.”School resource officers, or SROs, are Warren County deputies who are assigned to schools on a full-time basis. As deputies, SROs have full law enforcement training.While parents may not have noticed, there was an increased presence around most of the county’s schools Monday and Tuesday.
