Kamenetz to Announce Boost in Spending for Baltimore County School Security

Baltimore County officials say that County Executive Kevin Kamenetz will announce a “significant increase” in spending on school safety on Thursday.

Kamenetz will hold a news conference with police Chief Terrence Sheridan and Verletta White, interim schools superintendent, to unveil his school security spending plans for the next year.

This will be the third budget item that Kamenetz is announcing in advance of unveiling his full proposed budget next week. He’s already announced plans to include money in the budget to pay for more high school graduates to attend community college tuition-free and an increase in grants for arts institutions.
