In a podcast by the Y’s Men of Westport-Weston, Westport First Selectwoman Jen Tooker and Police Chief Foti Koskinas discuss a proposal to hire three school safety officers to deploy on Westport school campuses.

Chief Koskinas emphasizes that the positions are safety officers, not School Resource Officers (SROs), and explains why the $500,000 cost will appear as a Town expense rather than a Board of Education budget item.

New editions of the podcast appear on Mondays, alternating between Ms. Tooker and Weston First Selectwoman Samantha Nestor.
