Dedicated police department for Round Rock SD stays controversial
Six months ago, a task force was formed that is looking at the viability of a district police department. But some task force members continue to express concern about the possibility that a police department would unfairly target non-white students. District spokesperson Jenny Lacoste Caputo tells CBS Austin a dedicated police force could usher in a new era of diversity training. She also said a police force is vital for keeping up with the district's growth.
Recommendations will be submitted to the school board by February.
