    school safety are police without guns…. they do almost everything cops do….to me their job is harder because they deal with nyc public school kids…. which is not easy at all…. they deserve the same acknowledgement and recognition as the police….

    School Safety Agents are able to enforce the law without a gun, vest or pepper spray. If you ask any Police Officer if they would do the job of an agent their answer would be NO!. The job of an Agent in NYC Public School is more then just signing in visitors. They work extremely hard for low pay. We need to consider them Officers because they make arrests, voucher weapons, drugs, break up fights among other things, all without a gun. Keep Up the Great Job Agents!

    School Safety Officers have to be commended for what they do. It is shameful that Local 237 and its representatives did not show up to this officers bedside. We wish the officer a speedy recovery.
