PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Pender County will add student resource officers to area elementary schools.
The additional officers would cost about $50,000 per officer.
County commissioners are looking to add anywhere from two to seven officers, which means there could be one officer at each elementary school and one at Pender early college.
The topic is up for discussion at the next commissioners' meeting.
