Indiana House set to vote on school safety grant plan

INDIANAPOLIS — A stripped-down proposal that would start a state grant program toward helping school districts hire police officers and buy safety equipment is set to be voted on by Indiana legislators.

The House is expected to vote today on the bill after provisions that would have required all public schools to have gun-carry employees during school hours were pulled from it last week.

That proposal was shelved after questions were raised about training standards and the safety of having non-police officers carrying guns in schools.

The bill would have a new state school safety board review training and other issues surrounding the possibility of arming school staffers and submit a report to the Legislature by December.

The Senate has proposed spending $10 million a year on the safety grant program.
