School safety is a topic of discussion in the capital city. Lawmakers heard plans from leaders around the state yesterday, including Jackson County Sheriff Ross Mellinger. He said they have deputies spend time at a school of their choice every week. He argued law enforcement needs to make it as random as possible if an officer can’t occupy each school. Kanawha County Schools expressed a similar random approach, as well. However, Delegate Sean Hornbuckle told WSAZ that strategy would be difficult for larger cities who also don’t have enough staff. He noted it’s a good plan but needs some changes to be effective statewide.
