New Security Hire In District 186

Updated: Monday, August 11 2014, 03:43 PM CDT
SPRINGFIELD -- The state fair is always a bitter sweet moment for school age kids.

While it's fun to go to the fair it's also a sign that back to school is almost here.

His year Springfield District 186 has a new security and safety coordinator.

Jon Filbrun spent 29 years with the Springfield Police Department, and 15 years as an off duty security guard at Springfield High.

He tells us he's excited to start his new position, and says security budget cuts won't impact student and staff safety.

"It will be a little bit of an inconvenience, but I think we can make up for it in the long run. Every district has their problem with funds, so we have to work with what we've got and move forward," said Filbrun.

Right now Filbrun is going through the schools plans and educating staff on emergency preparedness.

He says he wants to make sure that all security personnel are working together in an effective manner throughout the district. New Security Hire In District 186
