Security is being beefed-up as Ontario starts a new school year. A police officer will have an office at Stingel Intermediate and Elementary Schools, where he will spend time when he's not on patrol or answering calls. Police Chief Rod Smith says this will not take any officers off the street or cost the department anything. He says it will be added protection, on top of the officer who patrols the middle and high schools each day. Superintendent Lisa Carmichael welcomes the added police presence. While Ontario Schools do not have regular problems with violence, both say safety cannot be taken for granted and this extra protection should help prevent trouble. Panic buttons have also been installed in every classroom.
