TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Deputies are now posted at every elementary school in Leon County.
The decision - and the money to pay for it - were approved just two weeks before opening bell.
Kristen Coe was picking up her daughter at school Tuesday and was pleasantly surprised to see a deputy out front.
"I love them being here," Coe said. "The added security makes me feel better as a parent and I know it probably makes the students feel a lot more safe and secure."
