State Funding Found for Kat-Lewisboro School Resource Officer

LEWISBORO, N.Y. – The Katonah-Lewisboro School District will have a police officer on campus for the upcoming school year thanks to an $80,000 bullet aid grant agreement between Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Senate and Assembly.

Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson) recently announced the agreement.

“In the wake of the horrific Sandy Hook event and other recent school shootings, I believe having a school resource officer is a vital tool to prevent these tragedies,” Ball said. “I recently hosted two school safety roundtables and it has become clear that having police officers present in schools serves as not only a deterrent for evil but has proven to be very positive for our children.”

Ball secured the same $80,000 state grant for a Katonah-Lewisboro school resource officer last year in addition to making a pledge to keep the program alive in following years. So far, he has delivered on that promise.

“I am happy to deliver again for the Katonah-Lewisboro School District and will continue to work with community partners to bring as much of our tax money back from Albany, home where it belongs,” Ball said.

Katonah-Lewisboro Assistant Superintendent for Business Michael Jumper was also pleased with the news.

“During this time of fiscal constraint we are very pleased to receive this financial support,” he said. “Through the cooperative efforts of Senator Ball, the town of Lewisboro and the school district, these funds will continue to be used to pay for our school resource officer.”
