On this episode of the Bespoke Parenting Hour Podcast, host Julie Gunlock speaks with Laura Carno, IWF senior fellow and founder and executive director of FASTER Colorado—an organization that trains armed K-12 school staff—about the consequences of removing school resource officers (SROs) from public schools. Since the death of George Floyd, there has been a big push, particularly in blue cities, to defund the police. That push has now extended into the public school system, where—in light of much opposition—city councils are cutting SRO budgets and, quite literally, taking the security and safety out of schools.
