Portland Schools To Increase Police Presence

(Portland, OR)  --  The Portland school board approves of a plan to pay police officers for an increase presence in schools.  They made the decision at their meeting last night after holding listening sessions to get feedback from students.  Portland Public Schools is projected to pay 364 thousand dollars for officers in schools this year, and then one-point-two million dollars a year for the next three years.  Some still oppose the plan, with one parent even starting a petition against the vote.
