    Wake County NC to consider unarmed guards for grade schools.

    Wake County school board to consider guards for elementary schools

    Raleigh, N.C. — The Wake County Board of Education is expected to vote Tuesday on a proposal to put one unarmed security guard at each elementary school in the district.

    If approved, the measure would cost $835,000 for three months or nearly $2.4 million for a year for a contract with AlliedBarton Security Services. The company already provides security for some of the schools in the district.

    Board Chairman Keith Sutton said the recommendation comes after a review of the district’s security policy in the wake of the mass shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, where 20 first-graders and six staff members lost their lives.

    "We reviewed our practices and looked at security at several of our schools," he said. "We were particularly concerned after our review at some of the elementary schools."

    Most of the high schools and some middle schools in Wake County have school resource officers who are armed.
    If the high schools and some of the middle schools have armed guards why not provide the same security at elementary schools. Or maybe it just gives them such a warm fuzzy feeling to have a guard dog with no teeth.

    Well, I think it's a start. One good guy with a gun is better than none.

    SRO are usually police officers that are assigned. What they didnt tell you is they have multiple schools and only 2 maybe 3 SROs. Who routinely visit on some weird schedule. BG just needs to do what criminals do and nothing changes. Wait for the sro to leave.

    Most high schools in my area have a deputy from the sheriffs dept on site during school hours. They offset costs by ticketing the kids ( parking tickets ) It is nice to have a assigned deputy to each school. They get to know the kids. They figure who is good and who isn't.

    Unarmed guards backed up by unarmed school staff. There's a recipe for disaster. They'll probably have to be rescued by one of the student packing heat.

    No,no, no... He can remind the bad guy that he's in a "gun free" zone and that'll get him to leave the area so as to not break the law!

    I did not catch that. A report that I read earlier stated armed guards from Allied Barton. With all due respect to any of the many unarmed security guards on this site (I used to be a NC Security Officer instructor - PPSB), an unarmed guard will be a waste of money if the intent is to avoid shootings in schools.

    Our local high and middle schools have an armed county cop (student resource officer) on staff at every school. They are very involved and get to know the kids. They are not just assigned to the schools, they actually apply to be put there and go thru special training. Most work open to close, at sports games, etc...I think more schools in the US should consider it. We also have metal detectors at every entrance and all kids get scanned/searched/wanded in the morning. Too bad its come to this but welcome to the real world.

    Yes, but with all the extra 'unarmed' individuals, just think about how many more calls to 911 there can be?

    $2.4 million/year for call 9-1-1 and be a good witness. Righteous bucks.

    Well this will be a big waste of tax dollars. An unarmed guard is no guard at all.
