Burke County NC Jan 12 2017 The Burke County Board of Education and Burke County Commissioners are finalizing plans to turn over security at the county’s public schools to the Burke County Sheriff’s Office.
The county commission unanimously voted to approve the agreement, which states that the BOE will pay 100 percent of funding for five SRO (School Resource Officers) trained deputies.
The school system currently has a contract with a private law enforcement agency but that will end in the coming weeks.
The deputies will take over all security and law enforcement responsibilities of the schools.
