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.
