Levelland's School Board approves the hiring of additional security officers, and will permit trained teachers to carry firearms on campuses.

A committee consisting of teachers, community members, and law enforcement has been discussing this issue for months.

The majority of committee members voted to hire two additional resource officers and allow certain teachers and staffers to carry concealed handguns. 

Levelland Superintendent Kelly Baggett said training is going to be the key.
