Additional resource officer to work at local schools

Federal grant to help pay for cost of officer at local schools

The Hollister City Council on Monday approved an agreement between the city and the Hollister Unified School District to assign an additional police officer to serve as a school resource officer at district schools. The Hollister Police Department in late 2014 received a federal grant to help pay for the joint venture.

The new officer will cost just over $18,000 for the rest of this fiscal year and then $60,353 in fiscal year 2015-15; $62,453 in 2016-17 and approximately $72,000 in 2017-18.
