Group to release statement on police presence in schools

Posted: Updated:

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- The group Citizens For United Public Schools is set to release a statement Tuesday in response to North Charleston's mayor stationing officers at elementary schools. 

Mayor Keith Summey is pushing to have a police officer in every city elementary school. He announced the decision two weeks ago and started pushing for funding to make the officers' presence permanent. 

Summey said after the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting the idea started forming to do something to protect children in his city.

The group is expected to call for a community meeting to let the public voice concerns about the new police presence.
