Lafayette board approves hiring security

Updated:

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The Lafayette Parish School Board has voted to allow its board president to hire security to provide order and crowd control at future meetings.

Board President Hunter Beasley told The Advocate he and the executive committee would meet soon to draft a policy for the board's consideration.

Prior to the vote, board member Greg Awbrey cited recent meetings where audience members spoke out from the crowd and it was difficult to maintain order in the board room.

Awbrey suggested the board consider giving its president the discretion to hire security on an as-needed basis.

Mark Babineaux, a former board president, said unexpected issues would sometimes prompt emotional responses from some audience members.
