While having an SRO on campus may have a deterent factor, I dont feel that an unarmed SRO as this district is proposing would be much of a deterent. In fact its a bit disturbing in so much that they want an officer there, but want the officer unarmed. So in the worst possible case, another school shooting, they would still be helpless.
