Hewitt Officers Will Work Midway Schools

Posted:
HEWITT -

Hewitt City Council approved an interlocal agreement Monday night that would put two city police officers at Midway ISD campuses for the upcoming school year.

The school district's proposal called for one Hewitt police officer at Midway High School and the other stationed at the Middle School.  They would still be able to respond to any MISD campus, including the three elementary schools in the city and the DAP campus.

Midway ISD would reimburse the city for the cost of providing two full time officers on school property for 190 days for the upcoming school year.  The city would get the full time use of the officers the other 70 work days when school is not in session.

The district's proposal estimates a total cost of $144,385 to hire, equip, train and pay two officers.  MISD would pay just over $115,000 of that total and the city the remainder.

A similar agreement with the City of Woodway would provide one Woodway police officer to cover MISD schools on the north side of Highway 84.

The McLennan County Sheriff's Office would respond to needs at Speegleville Elementary, since it is not inside any city limits.

"We are excited to work with Hewitt and Woodway police departments to offer additional security this school year, and will continue to expand our emergency operation plans," said Midway Superintendent Dr. George Kazanas.

Hewitt's agreement was the final piece of the puzzle for the district to enhance security on its campuses without spending significantly more money to create its own police department.
