HACKENSACK -

The Hackensack School District, as well as the mayor, are working on a plan to increase security at all area schools.

Mayor John Labrosse says the town has a plan being finalized to put retired police officers in every school.

Discussions are continuing on how the plan will be funded, but an agreement is close.

The retired officers would be assigned to the middle school, four elementary schools and the pre-K program.

Hackensack High School will continue to be protected by a school resource officer, who is a current Hackensack Police Department member.
