Demopolis Board of Education discusses safety measures

Published 9:42 am Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Following an executive session during the Demopolis City Schools Board of Education meeting Monday night, the board took action on two items pertaining to the safety of the schools.

The first item authorized Superintendent Al Griffin to hire an off-duty officer for the remainder of the 2012-13 school year to go between the schools during the day. There is already one officer that goes between the schools now, and the new officer will be able to help keep check on the schools.

The second item was to allow police chief Tommie Reese to have 10-20 days to analyze the school system’s safety plan and bring a recommendation to the board for future safety plans.
