BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -
Bossier Elementary school students will be seeing armed officers roaming their hallways.
Some parents say the heightened security is necessary after recent mass murders like the Sandy Hook Shooting in Newton, Conn.
The Bossier Parish School Board voted Thursday night to rotate 4 part time Sheriff's Deputies between the district's 19 Elementary schools.
"It's a little disruptive that everyone has to carry a key and everything like that, but of course we understand the reason why," says parent Chris Brown.
The officers are just the first step according to Bossier School officials. Officials say that by next year they would like to see more than 20 officers on school campuses, this would cost more than 2 million dollars.
"This will not have any negative effect at all, just more positive reinforcement for the kids," says Brown.
There are already security cameras, linked walkie talkies with the Sheriff's department, and standard procedures for signing kids in and out of school.
School officials say they are working now to find funding for extra security officers for next year.
