Glendale Assigns School Resource Officer To Every Public High School

As high school students in Glendale returned to classes this Monday morning, some might have noticed a new face on campus.

Starting Monday, every public high school campus in the city has its own school resource officer. That means the five Glendale high schools that did not already have an officer now do. The decision was led by Glendale’s city council and police department, and spans multiple districts in the city.

Here to talk more about it is Glendale City Manager Kevin Phelps.
