School officials to hire third person for force in wake of tragedy




The county’s only school police department is adding an officer in an effort to have more security at each school building.

The Center Grove Police Deparment, which was formed in 2006, is adding a third full-time officer. The department has had two officers since it was formed and always had planned to add a third, assistant superintendent Bill Long and Superintendent Richard Arkanoff said.

Adding the officer, who is expected to be hired by the end of February, became a priority after last month’s shootings at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., officials said.
