School Resource Officers (SROs) at CHS plan for the transition to potentially having a new SRO in November, according to SRO Shane VanNatter.
“We often have only three SROs at the high school so another officer will help with that, and we will always have four SROs if we get another officer in November,” VanNatter said.
According to VanNatter, the upcoming safety referendum will hire 13 new SROs for the district, stationed at CHS will be one of those 13 SROs.
Karthik Arcot, a senior in favor of this safety referendum, said more SROs will increase the safety of all the schools in the district.
“I definitely agree that more full-time SROs at this school and the other schools in the district will make the schools more safe and secure, and students will also feel safer knowing that there are more SROs at the school,” Arcot said.
