Statement from Melissa Moran, a School Parent

My children go to public school and feel safe knowing that there is a safety officer there to protect them. The school safety officer in my son’s school, PS 13, knows every student’s name and every student looks forward to going to school just to see the safety officer and makes it a better day for the kids. Taking safety officers out of the school is a huge mistake and only leaves room for disaster. I personally would not send my child to public school without a safety officer in the building. School is a better and safer place because of the school safety officers.
