CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV)- There is a new police chief in town. In November Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) district school board members decided to name Sgt. Randy Hagler to that position. We are checking back in to see how the job is going.
Hagler has more than 30 years of experience in the police force. He is in charge of all security inside the district's nearly 160 schools. He also supervises nearly 130 employees. CMS' top cop is right now dealing with a rise in larceny cases at schools. This year more and more students are bringing their own technology to school to help them learn. Hagler explains the problem with that.
"Not all of it goes home with the person who brought it," Hagler said. We've had some larceny cases involving Ipads, cell phones, things like that - that drive some of our numbers and we are looking at ways we can slow some of that down."
