Posted in: Armed deputy at Florida high school resigns after failing to engage shooter See in context

Whether the officer should have engaged the shooter or not is one debate.

But as a former highschool student in the US, I do remember when the ‘resource officers’ were assigned to schools to deal with any measure of criminal activity from outside or inside influences. It goes beyond but includes preventing violent acts by students or non-students.

There must be some data insights into the effectiveness of this policy as a whole. It certainly has parralels to the air marshall policies introduced after 9/11.
