Atlanta Public School will create its own police force after cutting ties with the Atlanta Police Department, according to a report at CBS46. The school board voted on Monday night to create a plan to hire 50 officers for the next school year, using $7-million in federal grant money. School board members said the system having its own police force would allow them to be trained to specifically respond to issues with students.
