The Fresno Bee: Defund police in Fresno schools? This district kept cops and improved student outcomes

Story excerpt:

"As debate grows over the use of armed police officers in Fresno Unified schools, a school district in Colorado with many similarities to Fresno appears to have found a middle ground between keeping police on campuses and improving outcomes for students.

Ultimately, after years of tinkering, the Aurora Public Schools in suburban Denver landed on a program that keeps police officers on campuses while also focusing on more progressive discipline and safety programs like restorative justice.

Additionally, the police presence in the Colorado schools doesn’t cost the district a cent."
