Armed police officers will continue to be a common sight at Cullman City Schools.

The Cullman Times reports that the city and the local school system have teamed up to station retired officers at every school for the remainder of the school year.

Police were added after the Connecticut school system in December but the temporary arrangement was stretching the police department's resources.
