The Palm Springs Unified School District board of education approved new contracts to bring School Resource Officers (SROs) back to campuses.
SROs will return to high school campuses at all PSUSD cities except for Palm Springs and Desert Hot Springs. Both City Councils will vote on whether or not to approve this new contract on Thursday.
The four law enforcement agencies working with PSUSD will cover on average 30% of the cost of the officer.
Contracts by City:
- Cathedral City - $176,000
- Sheriff's Department - $178,000
- Desert Hot Springs - $112,234.20
The contract for Palm Springs SRO would cost the district approximately $182,220.92, city documents show.
There is no set date for when officers will return to campuses. Joan Boiko, public information officer for PSUSD, said the decision will be up police chiefs.
