The Starkville School District is doing both of those things by implementing a use-of-force policy that would allow on-campus police officers to carry firearms and use them if necessary.

“After the Sandy Hook situation or even before Sandy Hook, we were considering a policy of our own because if something, heaven forbid, ever did happen and someone would say, ‘Well, you weren’t authorized to do that,'” said Starkville Superintendent Dr. Lewis Holloway.

The proposed use-of-force policy does several things.

It specifies what type of firearms officers can have, where they are to have them and how they can use them.
