Teton Co. wants funds for school cops

Oct 31, 2013 - The Associated Press

JACKSON -- Teton County school officials are expressing support for funding from Wyoming lawmakers for school resource officers.

Teton County school trustees approved a resolution that asks the Wyoming School Boards Association to back legislation for funding.

Currently, the state doesn't provide schools with funding for safety and security personnel.

The Teton County school district spends $90,000 annually on two school resource officers, one who is a Jackson police officer and another who is a deputy with the sheriff's office. They're stationed at various schools in the district.
