State legislature approves funding for resource officers at 120 schools statewide

A joint committee at the Arizona state legislature approved funding for nearly 120 school resource officers on campuses across the state.

"For the past two years, I've made school safety funding a priority for our Arizona schools," said co-chair of the Senate Education Committee, Kimberly Yee. "This ensures students feel safe so they can focus on their academics."

Lawmakers agreed to spend nearly $12 million from the general fund for the 2014-15 school years to add a total of 118 new officers and three juvenile probation officers.

The School Safety Program also requires law-related education to "equip students with knowledge and skills pertaining to law, school safety and effective citizenship.

"It's another sign of this legislature's focus on the importance of school safety. We must do all we can to make sure our kids feel safe," said Yee.

About the Author


Sandra moved from the small border city of Yuma, Arizona to study Broadcast Journalism at Arizona State University in the late 90s. Since graduating, she's worked at several local TV stations including Univision, Fox 10 and 3TV.

Working at KTAR, has allowed her the opportunity to cover major national news events, including Presidential visits, the Tucson Tragedy and the Wallow fire.

When Sandra isn't covering breaking news or behind a microphone in the studio, she's probably at home with her best friend Mark and her two dogs, Lily and Lola.

Sandra enjoys cooking and admits to enjoying "really bad" reality T.V. She also enjoys spending quiet time at home with people she loves, playing a little poker and traveling.
