For me, that solution of that purchase specifically belongs to other departments of the city or county police. And if it is to spend money, create the school police and improve the use of security cameras in real time, which right now is not efficient at all, neither inside nor outside each school. Eliminate the absurd expenses of heavy agendas, photographs among other items that students do not need. And no more district meetings open to the public in one direction on total defensiveness. You urgently need to listen more to parents or guardians, who are seeing the needs of students directly every day. They have huge and serious problems to improve.
