WOODVILLE, OH (WTOL) -

Another local school district has decided to have a police presence inside of their schools full time.

Woodmore Local Schools have signed a memorandum of understanding with the Woodville Police Department and Elmore Police.

The district is willing to pay $70,000 a year for the village departments to hire two officers, one from each department, to be assigned as school resource officer of each of the districts buildings.

In recent years, the district has requested more regular police presence during the school year, but now village officers will be on site all day every school day.

The goal is to not only ensure student safety, but also to allow the students to have more interaction with their villages police as well.

"Anything we can do to help our kids, we work for that everyday. And we're trying to make our kids safe, and we want them doing positive things and making positive choices. And that's what we're doing," said Tim Rettig, Superintendent of Woodmore Local Schools

Woodmore Local Schools hopes to have all of the paper work in order to have those two officers inside of the two school buildings by the upcoming school year.
