After pulling police from MCPS before SRO study completed, Elrich to bring them back

The about-face comes after several violent incidents inside Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) during the 2021-2022 school year.

This was before school officials completed a study ordered by the Board of Education seeking more community input about the program.
