Collier to put two police officers in schools
The Collier commissioners on Wednesday night approved assigning two school resource officers to the Chartiers Valley School District buildings in the township.
The school resource officers will begin training on Jan. 28 and are scheduled to begin on Feb. 4 at the middle school-high school campus and primary school, both on Thoms Run Road, said Collier Manager Sal Sirabella.
Three Collier police officers expressed interest in becoming a school resource officer, Sirabella said. He declined to name which officers were assigned.
The district remains in negotiations with Scott officials to place a school resource officer at the intermediate school on Swallow Hill Road.
Scott commissioners could vote Jan. 22, township Manager Denise Fitzgerald said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
