Officials say a security officer who left his gun unattended in a Lapeer charter school's restroom will keep his job.
According to Chatfield School Director Matt Young, the school reviewed the incident and has decided the unnamed officer "is a good fit for the position."
But Young says the K-8 school about 45 miles northwest of Detroit has revised its security procedures and added additional protocols. The Flint Journal reports (http://bit.ly/XHvwyC) they include installing "a lock box in a male staff restroom for our security officer to secure his weapon in while he uses that restroom."
The county prosecutor's office has said a criminal charge isn't necessary, since no one was harmed.
Chatfield recently hired the officer to help strengthen security. He's retired from the Lapeer County sheriff's department.
