Town Cutting School Resource Officer Program

After taking a hard look at the numbers, the Town of Vegreville is cutting the School Resource Office program

The Town of Vegreville has decided to axe the School Resource Officer Program.

Mayor Tim MacPhee says that it just isn't economically viable anymore.

Under the program, the Town must give a years notice of cancellation of the program, with the program set to end in December.

Under the funding model, Elk Island Public School Division contributed $15,000, Elk Island Separate School contributed $4,000, and the Town of Mundare $2,000, while the Town of Vegreville contributed $99,000 annually.
