Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, Texas - An area school district will now have additional security on campus.

The Bushland ISD school board approved the district to have a liaison officer floating around the elementary, middle and high school campuses.

Potter County Sheriff Brian Thomas tells us they plan to have the officer start on February 1st.

The cost of added security will be split between the district and the sheriff's office, 75 percent to 25 percent.

Sheriff Thomas says they will hire internally, and interviews will start Friday.
