According to a CTV news report, Steinbach Regional Secondary School has received board approval to hire a security guard to provide additional safety for its 1,700 students.

Hanover School Division Superintendent Randy Dueck characterized the hiring as “proactive” rather than “reactive.”

According to the article:

“We have a population in that building right now of 2,000 people; 1,700 plus students and then staff over and above. So it’s the size of a small village,” he said.

The superintendent assured students are “safe and secure,” and added the school wants to keep it that way.


He said the division will likely hire a security company out of Winnipeg to provide the guard.

While an advertisement for a security guard has not yet been posted, Dueck said the extra security is expected to cost around $10,000 this school year.
