Granite School District Cops to be Armed With Military Style Rifles

THE 15 OFFICERS -- IN THE GRANITE SCHOOL DISTRICT POLICE DEPARTMENT -- ARE BEING ISSUED HIGH-POWERED RIFLES, TO BE PREPARED FOR A POTENTIAL SCHOOL SHOOTING, AT ONE OF THEIR 92 SALT LAKE VALLEY SCHOOLS.

THE AR-15 RIFLES WERE PURCHASED AT A MILITARY SURPLUS SALE.

DISTRICT POLICE CHIEF RANDY JOHNSON SAYS, NATIONWIDE, THE BAD GUYS HAVE CHANGED THE RULES OF THE GAME. BY PACKING MORE AND MORE POWERFUL WEAPONS.

THE GRANITE SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS PREVIOUSLY OWNED AR-15 RIFLES... BUT NEVER ENOUGH FOR EACH OFFICER TO HAVE THEIR OWN.

THE DISTRICT IS ALSO SPENDING MONEY ON NEW, HIGH-TECH SECURITY CAMERAS, FOR ALL OF ITS SCHOOLS.
