Rochester City Council Approves Money For RPD Officers To Be At Schools
Written by Andre on January 13, 2023
Rochester City Council has approved the funding for the Rochester Police Department to place officers at schools. City Council voted earlier this week to fund overtime for RPD officers to be present at some of the schools in the City of Rochester.
The officers will be at certain schools for the arrival and dismissal times. This comes after a man tried to shoot a 16 year old at Franklin High School last week. The RCSD School Board voted to have officers from RPD at the schools but not inside at arrival and dismissal. The vote was unanimous.
The City of Rochester will pay RPD up to $336,000 in overtime to the shifts at the schools.
