Proposed program for more security at Josephine County schools

640x360_51218B00-PVQMYJosephine County, Ore. — Another tax levy may end up on the May ballot for Josephine County voters. This one will be used to increase security in schools.

The Three Rivers School District superintendent made a presentation Tuesday for a program to put armed, retired law enforcement officers in schools. Grants Pass Police Chief Bill Landis, Josephine County Sheriff Dave Daniel, and State Representative Carl Wilson helped put the proposal together.

The officers would work six hours a day, 180 days a year. The superintendent is proposing a five cent tax for every $1000 of property value for the three year levy.
