OXFORD, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – A proposal that would allow police to store guns inside Oxford High School and the district’s middle school is sparking debate one-and-a-half years after a deadly shooting that killed four and injured seven.

In a continued push for more safety measures, Oxford Community Schools is considering installing two gun safes inside its secondary schools. Oakland County Sheriff’s deputies who work as school resource officers would be able to store department-issued rifles to be used in the event of a school shooting.

A second option would be to install four additional safes to allow select school security personnel and private security to also access weapons and gear.

While this may sound extreme to some, Oxford would not be the first Michigan district to allow school safety personal to have access to such gear. Four other Michigan school districts have installed similar gun safes inside their schools, including school districts in Oakland, Livingston and Lapeer counties, according to Ben Powers. He is co-owner of 360 Life Safety, a Brighton-based seller of security equipment for schools.

Powers declined to identify the districts by name.
