Billings Public Schools are going to add a officer in its elementary schools.  A resource officer will join next school year who will rove between elementary schools, in addition to other safety upgrades. The Billings Gazette reported that Superintendent Terry Bouck announced changes at the School District 2 trustees earlier this week.

The district is also going to apply a film to windows on exterior doors at schools to reinforce the glass. The film won't stop bullets, but will be really hard to break a window. The Elementary schools will be the first to have this new film.

The district has seven officers assigned to it's high schools and middle schools.
Mark Wahl who is the Activities director will oversee security and emergency preparedness in addition to his other activities.
