Excerpt From: News & Observer. Written By: T. Keung Hui.

Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison is calling for the school system to create its own police force following the recent controversy over a police officer slamming a Rolesville High School student to the floor.

In a letter sent Thursday to the school board and Wake County Board of Commissioners, Harrison says the existing “patchwork of a public safety system in our schools is set up for failure.” Harrison cites how the 12 local law enforcement agencies have different protocols and training standards that he says often may be in conflict with the goals and objectives set by the school system.
