MEDFORD, Ore. -- The Medford School District is upping its security measures by approving another school resource officer. The school district now has the most school resource officers per capita in the entire state. The addition is to add more police presence at its secondary and elementary schools. The new officer will be added once MPD is able to hire someone for the position. 

This isn't the only change in security for the school district. By the end of September, each Medford school will come equipped with a single point of entry and a doorbell system. Faculty and staff are also undergoing ALICE training, a specialized training to prepare for an active shooter situation.
