COLUMBUS, Ind. — The Columbus Police Department has opened its internal search for experienced law-enforcement candidates to serve as the first student resource officers for the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corp.
Police Chief Jason Maddix said he opened up the application process today, the day after the school board heard an outline of steps necessary to get the program in place by January.
Police would have offices at Columbus East and Columbus North high schools and be just a phone call away for other schools across the district, Maddix said. He said the officers will spend most of their time building relationships with students by walking hallways and collaborating with school officials on fights and other disciplinary issues.
