Bishop Michael F. Olson and the Guardian Ministry of the Diocese of Fort Worth have reinforced the protection of all 17 Catholic schools in the Diocese of Fort Worth for the current school year and plan to continue campus security upgrades. All schools have received a School Resource Officer to support the current campus security in the protection of students, teachers, staff and parents. This resource officer is an off-duty police officer on campus Monday-Friday all day while school is in session.

With this extra set of eyes on the campus, more upgrades have come to light such as upgraded fencing, cameras, and crisis counselors. The total security initiative will cost $3.9 million and more than $2 million each following year to compensate the officers and counselors who will protect and care for our schools and students daily. We need additional support. The lives and safety of these children are priceless. Your donation to the Catholic School Security fund helps provide additional security measures for students, faculty and staff.
