Fulton County Schools Seek Partnership for Officer
By West Kentucky Star Staff
HICKMAN - City officials in Hickman are exploring a requested partnership with Fulton County schools for a Student Resource Officer.

KYTN reports that in a meeting this week, school system Superintendent Aaron Collins told City Commissioners of a plan to fund the position with the city.

Collins said the school system will provide the salary, benefits and clothing for an officer beginning with the upcoming school year.

Plans would call for the Resource Officer to be employed with the school system for 215 days, which will include daytime instruction at three buildings, along with sporting events and other activities.

Initial plans also call for the hired officer to cover vacation time of existing City of Hickman officers during the Summer months, when school is not in session.

Commissioners agreed to present the initial plan to attorneys with the Kentucky League of Cities for review.
