Congress should get a sense of public schools’ usage of school resource officers as it develops solutions for improving school safety. ‘Hardening targets’ such as schools, using local law enforcement and resources can better protect our institutions from those wishing to do harm.
Congress shouldn’t be compiling data on the prevalence of school resource officers as the militarization of schools is bad for education, and will do little to further secure schools and other potential targets from those wishing to commit acts of violence.
