Cape Coral to sign agreement for new SROs Monday

Published: Updated:

The City of Cape Coral is about to sign off on an agreement to put police in every school.

Cape Coral is making sure public and charter schools get their own resource officer and will officially adopt this agreement on paper Monday.

The city voted unanimously last month to approve more than $1 million towards 23 new police cruisers and the school district has agreed to pick up 50 percent of the costs, putting the rest of the weight on city and taxpayer dollars.

WINK News reporter Janae Muchmore was live in Cape Coral with the details of the new deal. Watch the segment above.
