In Walker County Commissioners Court Monday morning, Commissioners approved an Interlocal Cooperation Agreement between Walker County and the New Waverly Independent School District for a School Resource Officer.
We talked with Precinct #4 Constable Gene Bartee . . . .
Bartee says, “Eventually we hope to have a full-blown school resource officer program.” The officer, Justin Anderson, will be paid by the County and contracted to the school district. While working for the County he’s a traffic enforcement officer. At the school, he will perform school resource officer duties. The salary will be $10 dollars an hour with no medical benefits, sick time, or vacation time. Anderson is a full-time firefighter in Houston and will work for the County on his days off.
