Nikiski High School Continues Call For Safety Officer

Coinciding with yesterday’s safety evacuation of Homer High School, State Senator Cathy Giessel said her recent visit to Nikiski High School revealed a continued concern over school security. She said community members again asked about a safety officer for the school campus…

 

Sen. Giessel(R-S. Anchorage): “It was not provided in this last year’s budget, though there was an increase in State Troopers and my understanding is that a couple of those new State Troopers will be stationed on the Kenai Peninsula  So, my hope is that they will be able to get over to the Nikiski area a bit more often than has been in the past. The Troopers have been kind of stretched as far as covering a lot of territory and Nikiski’s kind of out there at the end of the road, but it’s a concern that the Principal has, of course.”

 

Troopers say they’re still waiting to see how the Governor’s proposed funding for new officers will be distributed across the state.
