Resource officer changes at school district
MANILA, Ark. (KAIT) - A change in officers is in the works in Manila.
The Mississippi County Fire, Police, and Safety Committee voted to approve a resource officer for Manila Public Schools at a Thursday afternoon meeting.
According to the district’s superintendent, Jason Evers, the district is changing from using a Manila police officer as a resource officer to a sheriff’s deputy.
Evers said this would help keep more officers on staff in Manila since the county has more deputies.
This change is not final yet; there are still more votes before it is official.
