Lafayette board looks at meeting security


LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The Lafayette Parish School Board could pay more than $5,500 annually for security at its meetings if the board opts to approve a policy related to hiring a security officer.

The Advocate reports the board meets Wednesday and is scheduled to take action on a new policy that enables the board president to decide whether security is needed at meetings.

Board President Hunter Beasley said he'd like security to attend regularly scheduled meetings of the board.

Costs are estimated at $5,500 to hire a school resource officer to attend the meetings. A school resource officer is a police officer trained to work in schools.

The estimate is based on a five-hour board meeting at a rate of $30.76 an hour.
