Criminals Could Pay for School Security Upgrades
A circuit court clerk has crafted a plan that could pay for increased security in Anderson County, TN schools at a cost to criminals.
Tyler Mayes, Anderson County circuit court clerk, said that there is a fee already in place, which pays for the security cameras and metal detectors in the courthouses, and that could help local schools, too.
Under the proposed "school security" fee, defendants found guilty of crimes in Anderson County would pay an additional $2 in court costs, said an WBIR.com report.
Several school board members have agreed with the proposal, the report said.
Both high schools in the county currently have two school resource officers, along with another that rotates among various schools.
