Letter to the editor: Retired police officer appreciates Mukilteo School District's support of School Resource Officers
Last updated 7/8/2020 at 12:26pm
I would like to comment on a couple of recent items in the Beacon. As a resident of Mukilteo and community volunteer, these letters and articles reinforced my choice of city and school district 22 years ago and I am proud to call Mukilteo my home.
I was pleased to see School Board President Michael Simmons (backed up by Councilmember Sarah Kneller) state that the Mukilteo School District will not follow some local school districts in banning School Resource Officers. I am a retired police officer and now run a criminal justice program at a college as well as write policing textbooks.
