Governor John Bel Edwards is working to find ways to equip every school with a school resource officer. He says the vast majority of schools already have them but not all. Edwards made the comments during his monthly radio show, “ask the governor.”

 

The governor adds each officer should have uniformed training.

 

He says he’s saddened by the situation today’s schools are in.

 

A task force has been assembled to study the issue.
