The finance committee of the Dougherty County School Board met Wednesday morning.
Lane Price came with a request from the security committee asking the school board to purchase twenty-four bullet proof vests and over twenty new radio's for the DCSS school police. The vests and radios will cost over $20,000.
Dr. David Mosely, the DCSS interim superintendent, said the new merchandise may be expensive but it will be worth it in the long run. Mosely said the school police officers are sometimes put in pretty dangerous situations and its the school boards duty to make sure they are protected.
