Officers return to high schools


The Board of Aldermen has found the money to return two police officers to the city’s high schools. The officers, who represent half of the police on duty at the schools, were returned to regular patrol duty to make up for a $200,000 shortfall in the Police Department’s budget. Some antigang patrols also were eliminated. Aldermen moved $178,000 from the city’s Welfare Department budget to finance the return of the officers to the high schools.
