Mason City police have two school resource officers who patrol the school ground throughout the city, according to Lieutenant Ron Vande Weerd. “They spend the majority of their time out there (at the High School / Adams / Alternative school campus)” he said. But they also go to the elementary schools.
He said they are there so that a student can approach an officer if he or she is being bullied or has a problem.
