Brown said his church, Shepherd’s Gate, was willing to pay for the meals for the first two months of the program.

“I think we should get people used to seeing officers there, and I am willing to do whatever needs to be done,” Brown said.

“I don’t have any problems with the idea, but I think we need to work with the principals,” said Ellis. “We’ll also need some mechanism to spread them out, so we don’t have five officers there one day and none the rest of the week.”

“We want the officers to be comfortable with the kids, and the kids to be comfortable with the officers being there,” Brown said.
