Deputies in Schools: What Lutz is Saying

Hillsborough’s decision to keep deputies stationed at elementary schools has received a warm reception so far. What’s your take?

When Lutz area elementary school kids go back to class tomorrow, they won’t go alone.

Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputies will continue to enforce the same beefed up security they offered in the days following the Newtown, Conn., shootings.

The announcement of increased security throughout the rest of this school year has been a hot topic of discussion on Lutz Patch and its Facebook page.

Here’s what a few readers have said so far:

“Asia and South America have been doing this for decades, and no reports of any shootings. The schools are fenced and after the last student enters, the gate is locked. Should have been this way here a LONG time ago. Attacking the second amendment will not be the answer!”

Bruce Kiper

“Absolutely! It's better to be safe than sorry, it gives the children a sense of security and also it can give children a positive perception of police from an early age. I think all schools in FLA and through out the country should have police officers in schools.”
