A Flagler County, Fla., mother took her young daughter’s safety into her own hands by personally hiring an armed sheriff’s deputy to patrol her daughter’s school, Old Kings Elementary.
Laura Laurie, concerned about her child’s safety after Sandy Hook, wrote a personal check for $12,000 to pay the cost of a Flagler County Sheriff’s deputy to patrol her daughter’s school six hours a day, five days a week, WKMG Orlando reported.
Parents are overwhelmingly grateful and supportive of Ms. Laurie’s contribution, the report said, noting that funding for armed guards in schools is not available. Currently, only the county’s high schools and three middles schools have deputies assigned to them. Old Kings is the first elementary school in the county to have an armed guard on duty.
