A special meeting of the board of the trustees was called on Saturday to approve a budget increase for two positions.
Approval for the additional school-based officer positions with the Livingston Police Department was the sole agenda item.
“I applaud the board of trustees for their continued investment in school security,” Livingston Superintendent Dr. Brent Hawkins said. “Our board has proven over time that they will make the toughdecisions to ensure that their commitment to the vision of school security becomes a reality. The increase in these funds ensures that each campus in LISD is covered by a school-based officer for the 2022-2023 school year. This is one of many actions that have been taken by the board and the school district to ensure the mission and priority of keeping our school’s students and staff as safe as possible.”
