The Oneida County Board of Legislators approved the addition of six extra special patrol officers for the county.

The six extra positions will be part-time and will fill contracts with Adirondack Central School, as well as Vernon-Verona Sherrill school districts.

These special patrol officers are different than full-time school resource officers who serve a number of different reasons. SPOs are retired, uniformed members who provide security services to schools.

"It's exciting because now like I've said it before, we're down to just one school district left in Oneida County that doesn't have armed security in it,” said Maciol.

Sheriff Maciol says the county is currently working with that school district to add a special patrol officer.

County Executive Anthony Picente says this would finish out his initiative of getting armed guards in every school in the county.
