Smart decision, Mountain View City Council. School Resource Officers are invaluable. Having worked in a neighboring district for 20 years, I can speak in support of the role these officers provide. I personally have three grandchildren in Mountain View schools and am very pleased at this decision. Mountain View PD is one of the best in the country!

I wish the cops would patrol the lines of cars waiting to pick up kids around our schools. Cars are Illegally parked, idling, with parents staring their phones as kids rush around. These places are accidents waiting to happen.
