Officers to be placed at PHHS, Northern

A new initiative being announced today by the Port Huron Police Department and the Port Huron Area School District. Starting Wednesday, a new School Resource Officer program will be implemented in both Port Huron High and Port Huron Northern High Schools. The program will allow officers to interact with students daily and provide a safe school environment. A short term agreement between the city of Port Huron and the school district will start this week at the expense of Port Huron Schools. Port Huron City Council will be asked by City Manager James Freed to approve a second agreement for next year’s school year, which will be share the costs of the officers between the city and the schools, at about $100,000 per year per officer.
