Colorado Sheriff Putting Plain Clothes Armed Security in Schools

Douglas County Sheriff David Weaver is taking the next step in school safety by putting plain clothes, armed “school marshals” in schools in his county next school year.

“It [will] be no different than getting on airplane; [where] you never know who the air marshal is,” Weaver explained. “When you walk into one of our schools, you won’t know who the law enforcement officer is.”  

He said media attention to this decision will only help keep kids safer because it gets the word out that armed officers will be roaming through schools to respond to anyone who entertains a Newtown, Connecticut-style attack.

“It is that awareness being brought by the media, as well as us educating the public that we do have plain clothes officers in the schools,” Weaver said.
