School resource officer proposal to be on May 4 ballot in Allen

OBERLIN, LA (KPLC) -

Full-time resource officers could be in place in Allen Parish public schools by next January if voters approve a measure to fund the program.

The Allen Parish School Board on Monday unanimously agreed to call an election for the proposal on May 4.

The millage, if approved, is expected to generate $630,000 annually.

Officials said the money would be used to hire, train and equip safety resource officers.

Surveillance cameras and other safety upgrades would also be funded with the tax.
