PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The Pender County Board of Commissioners will once again consider adding additional law enforcement officers to local schools.

The plan would add two additional officers for the rest of the school year at a cost of $9,000. The yearly cost of adding two additional officers would be $107,000, which includes hiring, training and equipping the new officers as well.

Pender County Schools have said they plan on making additional upgrades to schools, such as camera systems, throughout the school district.

Commissioners will discuss this issue during their meeting Monday afternoon.
