ELIZABETH - Elizabeth police officers are demanding that city school officials address the chaos that occurs when the final bell rings and thousands of students make their way out of the city's high schools, according to an NJ.com report.

An attorney for the police unions wrote a letter, obtained by the Star Ledger, which says every afternoon as many as 5,200 students are dismissed at one time.

The letter alleges that some of those students cause what the attorney calls "rampant violence and criminal behavior."

According to the report, city school officials reportedly sent a letter back to the police, saying they've spent millions of dollars on security each year.
