North Miami Beach To Place Additional Officers In Schools For Upcoming Year

The city of North Miami Beach will be placing additional security on each of its school's campuses this upcoming year.

The city is partnering with Miami-Dade Schools to place an officer in all schools within the city. The agreement is part of a plan from Superintendent Alberto Carvalho to have an officer in every school in the county by the start of the 2018-19 academic year.

Officers were already in place for the city’s middle and high schools. This agreement extends officer spots at the two elementary schools as well.

MDCPS has invested in a program that would hire 100 additional officers to fill out the remaining schools -- including hiring retired officers where needed.

Carvalho also announced a plan for comprehensive mental health services that include behavior treatments, early recognition programs, sensitivity training and anti-bullying efforts.
