Mayor Chris Beutler and Lincoln Public Schools Superintendent Steve Joel have issued the following statement in response to this morning's news conference by City Council member Cyndi Lamm and School Board member Matt Schulte.
"The City and LPS are pleased that Lamm and Schulte support adding School Resource Officers to our middle schools. However, the community proposal that we have developed is more comprehensive. It also increases mental health services, adds resources for threat assessment and strengthens Community Learning Centers, critical components of an effective long-term solution. We look forward to sharing more details on Thursday."
