YAKIMA, Wash. -- There could soon be a police officer patrolling the halls of Yakima's new Stanton Academy.

The Yakima School District asked for a Yakima police officer to be assigned to the campus.

Yakima's city manager agreed, but city council will have the final say tomorrow.

The district offered to pay most of the officer's salary.

The change would begin next month.
