SHALER (KDKA) — Shaler Area School District has hired its second school resource officer.
The district announced Thursday that it hired Millvale Borough Officer Brenan Jackson, who will begin work during the 2019-20 school year.
The board of directors approved a three-year contract with Millvale during an Aug. 21 voting meeting, a release stated.
Jackson joins Shaler Township Police Officer Frank Spiker, who has been with the district since 2014 as a resource officer.
“Shaler Area is very fortunate to have such strong, cooperative relationships with our local police departments,” superintendent Sean Aiken said in a release. “The addition of a second school resource officer will provide increased uniform police presence in all of our schools and a direct connection to additional area police department resources to assist staff and develop special classroom programming for students.”
