A Lincoln city councilman wants police officers assigned to public middle schools in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting that left 20 students and six educators dead.
Councilman Gene Carroll and Mayor Chris Beutler have sent a letter to Lincoln school board President Ed Zimmer that says the city wants to continue discussions about school safety and how the city can help.
Officers already are assigned to each public high school. Carroll wants city and school district to consider adding them to middle schools. He says the question of funding is a discussion for the future.
Zimmer says he thinks the school board would welcome such a discussion with the city.
