Teachers might get guns after reserve training

AP Wire • Jul 21, 2015 at 12:11 PM

Barry Township Police Chief Victor Pierce is working with the Delton-Kellogg school district to offer training to teachers and administrators.

Pierce said a reserve officer can carry a weapon with no restrictions, but is required to get continuous training. He said he came up with the idea after the shootings in December at a school in Newtown, Conn. Just days later, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder vetoed legislation that would have allowed concealed weapons in schools and elsewhere.

Pierce said the school district supports the effort, but hasn't approved a policy.

Delton is in Barry County, southeast of Grand Rapids.
