School Police Officer on Campus

Davis, Michael, Reporter

Many students have noticed that there’s a police officer on campus lately, but why has he been stationed here at our school? And is there anything we should be concerned about? 

According to ECTA Principal Ms. Delgado, it is a district wide initiative to have a police officer at every high school. After past school shootings, as well as crime related incidents on campus, it is understandable that there would be some new security measures put in place.

All in all, the police officer is there to protect students and staff from harm. Ms. Delgado believes in this too. When asked what her thoughts were on the new policy she replied with this: “Priority number one is safety; safety for students, safety for staff.”
