UTICA, N.Y. -- Another Mohawk Valley school district will get "special patrol officers.”

Oneida County and the Utica City School District will sign an agreement Monday, which will put SPO’s in every elementary school in the district.

It was announced this year that the county would fund half the cost of placing an SPOin schools – they patrol the building, restrain unruly individuals, and act in emergency situations.

The plan is to have SPO's in every school district in the county as early as next year.
