My high school had one full time cop, and he was probably bored silly. I doubt he had to deal with much beyond a few schoolyard fights or drug
peddling/using. We had zero cameras, or at least none that could be seen, so I don't think we had any. Mind you, I live in Canada :p
Still, our security in schools is increasing. My junior high didn't have a cop when I went there, but by the time my five years younger sister went
there, they had a full time cop, too. I think all our junior high and high schools in the city have a police officer, now, whereas when I went, only
the largest high schools did.
I wouldn't be surprised if things get worse. I have to wonder though, is the increase in security a response to a genuine need in schools, or
whether it is paranoia or NWO behind the increased security. It depends where you live, I'm sure, so it's hard to generalize, but I suspect a lot
of this security is overkill, though at dieanotherday's school, it sounds like most of it is actually needed.
