SANFORD–The Lee County Board of Education is not giving up funds for the SRO program that was moved from their jurisdiction, but the program will be funded by the county. Sheriff Tracy Carter had requested $261,000, however, the school board did not agree to transfer the funds, and Commissioner Robert Reives made the motion to fully fund the Sheriff’s request regardless of the school board, saying “we gave Carter this and we need to fully fund it.” Commissioner Jim Womack voiced his opposition and asked County Manager John Crumpton to seek all legal means to get the funds from the school board.
