  • Yes, I do

    I have two reasons, one is that there can be physical fighting, drug dealing, and even shoot outs at schools sometimes, police presence would help with these issues. Another reason is because of the Sandy Hook school shootings, if there were police officers or armed guards at Sandy Hook in the first place, the shooter probably wouldn't of taken a student's life.

  • Yes there should be police officers in schools.

    I agree with the other side that the school officials could break up a physical fight amongst students and a police officer isn't needed. However, we need at least one police officer at every school because there has been an increase in school shooting. If you place an officer at every school, they can prevent the shooting and the student's wouldn't get injured.

  • Yes, at least one in every school.

    The police are better equipped and trained to handle violent and illegal behavior. I am aware that the vast majority of student are not violent and do not engage in criminal behavior. That is why they need to be protected from the few students who cause these problems. Arming the faculty to prevent school shootings is definitely not the best idea, however, simply putting up a "No Guns Allowed" sign will do absolutely nothing. Having trained professionals on the premises just in case is, in my opinion, a fair compromise. They can react quickly to any dangers and in a more professional way.

    It will also allow kids to see police officers in action, which, in my opinion, will better relations between students and officers. They have a chance to talk to them, get to know them and be helped by them, much as students already do with teachers.

  • Of Course they should be

    And let teachers volunteer for concealed carry too. The real root of this is mental illness and lack of true teaching of values. These shooters have no value for life for one of the two reasons above or both. Until this changes, buy Kevlar backpacks, doorstops, and pepper spray grenades.

  • This is needed.

    An officer needs to be present at every school. Save our children. How many more lives need to be lost due to our negligence in this faction? Guns can save but ruin lives when in the wrong arms. Put guns in the right arms in our schools. Our children are dying because gun laws are not being changed and even so, many of these perpetrators would still be able to obtain a weapon. Let’s do something that can ACTUALLY be done and get an officer in every school every day. Stop the killing. School shootings would not be an issue if the person doing the harm knew there would be immediate consequences.

  • YES. End school murder sprees.

    “Kids will be scared”, “you don’t need a cop to break up a fight”.
    If your kid is afraid of a cop, reevaluate what you’re teaching your child. And no, obviously people don’t want officers in schools to break up fights. But when 17 children are mowed down in cold blood, who do you call? A man with a badge and gun. Just keep an officer there. End a massacre before it begins. End it before 70 kids are injured.

  • Yes, there should be at every school

    Being a high school student myself, I feel much safer knowing that we have a high school cop in the building at all times. Imagine an active gunman coming into the school, and having to wait 5-10 minutes for a police officer to come, that's way too long to wait. Plus, schools are gun free zones, meaning that in the case of a school shooting, the only person that'd be able to take an active shooter down is a police officer with a gun.

  • In School shootings

    My school already has ONE police officer and he carries weapons, but I think that there should atleast be one officer to every door. Yes most high schools or schools in general are fairly large, but to protect the student and staff members, I’m sure it would help quite a lot

  • Students lives matter

    There is no reason not to have police officers in schools, if you complain about taxes being ever so higher to pay for this, think of it like this. You are complaining that you have to pay to keep your children safe. How would you live with yourself if you knew there was an option to have a police officer in your child's school, and there's a school shooting there and your child dies.

  • Students will be scared.

    I think that police officers should not be in schools because students will feel like they're in jail. They will not be able to express themselves and be who they truly are if they have officers constantly watching them 24/7. They will be scared and disorder will soon start to grow.

  • No there should not be police officers in schools!

    No there should not be police officers in schools. First of all, you need privacy. Then the police cameras have enough tec to do the job that the police officers would do. You don't need police officers to stop help you and stop fights. You might see them peeking around in the doorway if you had them.

  • Don't treat them like criminals.

    Having police officers at school will create disorder. Police officers should be outside of school, dealing with problems important. Injuries at school should be dealt without police officers, and left to nurses, and teachers. If shooting actually happens of campus, which is very unlikely, then they have the right to come on campus. Overall, they aren't needed.

  • You do not need police officers at schools.

    You do not need police officers to break up a physical fight, in fact it is probably better handled inside the school system so you don't get a criminal record and mediation can occur. There are many more drug dealings out in the ghetto suburbs or wherever drug dealers hand out, put police there. The number of shootings and violence in bars and certain ghetto areas is definitely higher than whatever tiny percentage it is in schools. In summary, waste of resources.

  • That would be very sad

    It will be a very sad day when police officers have to be stationed in all schools. We don't have any in any schools in my country.

    Schools are full of kids and the schools have a right to discipline one kids as they see fit, they are not full of criminals. If we start treating kids like criminals then they will act like criminals.

  • Violent crimes have steadily been decreasing since the 1990s.

    Despite the unfortunate events that have recently circulated news stations around the nation, schools still continue to be the safest place for students. We do not need police officers in our schools (SROs). Having armed officers in schools have shown to have a negative impact on students rather than having a positive impact in their lives.

  • Education is better than force.

    The way to get kids to behave better is to teach them how to handle their emotions better. The sight of police officers causes students to feel guarded and like criminals. Kids act up naturally. Some officers are too brutal for small offenses. It makes school more difficult and causes kids to skip more.

  • Schools don't need cops

    I don't think the police need to be at schools because people would get more scared when they think that there is a bad guy at their school. They would get really nervous and they might not go to school anymore or they could go to a different school to feel more comfortable.

  • It creates a superiority complex.

    In a world where police and civilians are on thin ice in terms of cooperation, making kids feel like they are less than these ass hats. Whether they are or not, it's not healthy to feel shitty about yourself at that time in your life. It also creates fear between the staff and the students, the students won't stop doing what they want, they'll either get sneaker about it, or just won't care. Police officers should never be in schools.

  • It shouldn't be police period

    Should just be ppl there to protect children. Police should not be a job. Everyone should protect and police its own schools, communities, and more. Police respecting human rights, civil law, or the law of the land. Police jobs should be left up to the people to protect their others
