On call-in show, Floreen claims Council finds funds for school cops

On this evening's call-in program with County Executive Ike Leggett and County Council President Nancy Floreen, Floreen announced that the Council has found funding to put 9 police officers in Montgomery County schools in the fall. (Previously 33 were in schools, plus 1 funded by the City of Gaithersburg and not part of the County funding.) She said the rest of the funding for these officers would have to come from MCPS. Police officers in MCPS facilities are known as Educational Facilities Officers or EFO's. This is the latest in the EFO chess game that has been going on as part of the FY11 budget discussions.
