Off-duty officers allowed to bring guns to school

by

ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (WSAU) -- A school board has decided to allow off-duty police officers to carry their guns to school events. The Ashwaubenon School Board voted recently to allow the weapons, much like officers are allowed to do at Green Bay district schools.

Wisconsin's concealed carry law enacted in November 2011 prohibits weapons in some areas, including schools, unless the school reaches an agreement with an individual or that person’s employer to allow the weapons.

Ashwaubenon school officials say this provides added security at events and is also a good preventative measure.
