Washington, Illinois, School Board Looks At Arming Administrators


The school board in the town of Washington, near Peoria, has agreed to keep talking about a proposal to allow high school administrators to be trained as part-time police officers and to carry weapons on high school property.

 

The town’s police chief raised the idea and suggested it could be a way around the state’s ban on concealed carry.

 

Board members say they will further consider the idea as part of a broader discussion on school security, but at least one board member is skeptical that professional educators can or should double as police officers.
