VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Vigo County Sheriff Greg Ewing announced that he is creating a proposal to add three full-time deputies to post in county middle and elementary schools on a permanent basis.
The plan is going to be presented to the Vigo County Council meeting in January.
Ewing said if funded, full-time deputies would be assigned to Otter Creek, Honey Creek and West Vigo Middle School districts.
The officers would provide security to those middle schools, and the seven elementary schools that feed into them.
