City council OKs school resource officer for GLSD
By Chris Ulicne
Bulletin Staff Writer


In the wake of the recent tragedy at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, during which 22 people were stabbed by 16-year-old sophomore student Alex Hribal when he went on a rampage with two kitchen knives, according to police, Latrobe City Council on Monday night unanimously approved an agreement to hire and train a school resource officer for the Greater Latrobe School District (GLSD).

Latrobe Police Chief James Bumar spoke to city officials and the audience at council's meeting Monday night, urging everyone to recognize the potential of a school resource officer to not only respond in the case of an incident like the one at Franklin Regional, but also to prevent such tragedies from happening by working with students directly.
