Twinsburg Police Will Provide Second School Resource Officer Next Year

After discussions between Twinsburg Police and the Twinsburg City Schools, the police department plans to provide a second school resource officer next school year.

Twinsburg Police Chief Chris Noga said the police department will provide a second school resource officer for Twinsburg Schools next school year.

Twinsburg once had a second school resource officer, but had not been providing a second officer since 2009.

But renewed discussions about school safety in the wake of the Newtown, Conn. shooting have led officials to bring a second SRO back.

Noga said the new resource officer will also be DARE certified and will serve at RBC Middle School starting in the 2013-14 school year.

Noga currently has 33 full-time sworn police officers on staff, and he believes he can provide the service to the schools without adding staff.

"I think this is in the best interests of our schools," he said.
