Police presence could ease tensions at EGHS

February 29, 2012

EAST GREENWICH — With a series of recent incidents at East Greenwich High School and several arrests, town and school officials are hoping the return of a police presence can help ease a potential crisis.

Although the regular resource officer’s position at the school has become a victim of budget cuts, Police Chief Thomas Coyle is hoping the return of one, albeit on a limited basis, will head off further troubles at the school.

“They’ve been sporadic, some isolated problems. They’re hard to pinpoint,” said Coyle, adding that he and school Superintendent Victor Mercurio have been in constant communication about issues that might bring the police into the school.
