RCSD approves police presence at some schools

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The Rochester City School District Board of Education has approved a plan that will allow Rochester Police officers to be present at schools.

Officers will be present on some campuses during arrival and departure. They will not be at schools.

The school board agreed, but it was not a unanimous vote.

“If the police are just going to sit in their cars and not engage in any way … I have a bit of a problem with that,” said Commissioner Isaiah Santiago.

“Just having them on the premises as a deterrent … is money well spent,” Commissioner James Patterson said.

The partnership will cost the district $90,800.
