Why don't the schools put at least one armed officer at each school and hire three to four security officers in plain clothes to work at each school under the direction of the police? Whether they would be allowed to carry a firearm would be up to the discretion of the police and school. This is less costly than hiring more police officers. The main thing here is to deter any threat at the perimeter.
