In its meeting last week, the Trigg County School Board gave Superintendent Tim McGinnis the go-ahead to look into putting a School Resource Officer back into the schools and to investigate the idea of placing cameras throughout the campus.

McGinnis said the idea has been on the table for a while, but most recently came up as the number one recommendation from the Homeland Security team that recently investigated Cadiz’s emergency preparedness.

“Tragically, the timing is maybe good,” McGinnis said, referencing not the October incident in which a car was shot four times during school hours in a parking lot behind Trigg County High School, but last week’s shooting in Campbell County, Tennessee.

“It is a challenge to provide supervision,” McGinnis said. “We do have kids in transition constantly.”
