The Metropolitan Police Department has licensed private security officers in the D.C. public school system despite past arrests on charges of assault, cocaine possession and passing counterfeit money, according to a draft report by the D.C. inspector general. "There are contracted security personnel working in [public schools] who may pose a risk to the secure environment of students and staff," the draft document states. "There is no assurance that all contracted school security personnel possess the requisite skills to ensure the safety and security of ... students and faculty," according to the report, which has not yet been finalized. The Washington Times has obtained a copy of the draft. The Inspector General's Office refused to comment on the audit yesterday, saying its policy does not permit officials to discuss draft reports. "When we issue a draft, it is only for the limited purpose for the recipients to respond to us, and we cannot comment on the report until responses are received and the final report is issued," interim Inspector General Austin A. Andersen said.

Cons guarding cons.
Have no fear, a dangerous former felon like myself (drunk driving) can never jepordize national security by working at an airport. I can never endanger the elderly by working in a nursing home. I can never be a threat to children by working at a school.
They let illegal aliens do those jobs instead.
