What is the role of police in schools? (video)

Armenian MP Khachatur Kokobelyan says the presence of policemen in schools is impermissible. He criticizes the Government’s decision which shows that ‘schoolchildren are viewed as potential criminals.’

The Minister of Education and Science, Armen Ashotyan, says they decided to deploy policemen in schools in response to parents’ concerns who fear that their sons can be involved in disputes and scuffles.

“We are trying to create an image of law-abiding citizens,” said the minister.
