Build Police Station and other Armed Government Buildings on School Grounds

 Commissioners And School Board,

                                              I am petitioning local government to situate local police stations directly on our school grounds. In addition, I would ask that you would considering the possibility of any other armed government employees such as the National Guard and Army Reserves to operate in close proximity to our school buildings where ever possible. I have previously lived in a community that placed prefabricated buildings on school grounds as onsite police stations. These schools were well protected by local police, as well as, having fenced and gated school grounds with high safety standards.

There is clearly a serious issue with the shootings, threats and violence in our schools. I have lived in several other states and communities and I can honestly say that our Denver, NC schools are far less protected then that of other school districts. As tax payer's we are paying for government buildings that house all local branches of government and local schools. It would seem reasonable to group the local armed employees with our local schools to give our children the highest level of protection that we can possible provide for them.  I am happy to say that the policed school district that I spoke of has never had a serious school threat or incident. I also know of a playground and park that is placed in the same location as a police station and it has never had the issues that other parks and playgrounds have had in the same area. It only stands to reason that a highly secured area will deter any potential danger. It is my hope that you and your colleges will seriously consider this concept as the dangers to our children persist. I believe this type of action is both feasible and reasonable.
