The city is bringing back its school resource officers after Vallejo’s financial crisis ended the program for about seven years when “the priority became the streets,” a police sergeant said Thursday at a forum on juvenile justice in Solano County.
“I was very proud of that program,” Sgt. Brent Garrick said of school resource officers.
He served as a school resource officer for eight years and said people in the their 30s come up and thank him for his work.
About eight officers were in the program that now has two school resource officers – with a third to be added in next several months.
