Rutledge Responds To Suspension of School Security Personnel Licenses

AG Candidate Rutledge Responds to Arkansas Board of Private Investigator and Private Security Agencies Decision
Little Rock, Ark. – Today, former Prosecutor and Republican candidate for Attorney General Leslie Rutledge in response to the decision of the Arkansas Board of Private Investigators and Private Security Agencies to suspend the licenses of school staff and faculty members registered with the state as “security personnel” issued the following statement:

“Clarksville Superintendent David Hopkins and his fellow Superintendents throughout Arkansas deserve the flexibility and authority to be able to make the best decisions for protecting their students. After the recent attorney general’s opinion which led to today’s decision by the licensing board, Superintendent Hopkins was left with little choice but to alter his district’s well thought out plan to protect students from an armed threat. Now, in light of this end-of-summer decision by the licensing board, school districts across Arkansas are scrambling to put security plans in place that will ensure the safety and security of Arkansas school children from an armed threat. Our school districts and other local leaders deserve the authority and guidance from state leaders to enable local districts to better secure our schools.”
