Tasers On Campus - REJECTED

June 29, 2009
By WKRG Staff

The Mobile County School Board voted down a proposal that would allow security officers to carry tasers on school campuses. The issue was on the agenda during Monday night's meeting.

Before the meeting, Superintendent Roy Nichols recommended that the school board should adopt a policy that strictly outlines when security officers can use a taser. He also recommended that security staff be trained and certified by Mobile Police.

The proposal was rejected by a vote of 3 - 2. Ken Megginson and Judy Stout voted in favor of the proposal.
