Yes, maybe with a "police officer" the students and staff and even parents will feel a bit safer.
I was at an elementary school in an area that wasn't too great, and there was a very friendly police officer there right by the main entrance. He would usually sit there and greet everyone, and it gave me a sense of protection at this school that was in an area where gangs are...
