(CNN)– A Florida mother has paid to have a deputy stand guard at her daughter’s elementary school.

Laura Lauria paid nearly $12,000 for an officer to be at Old Kings Elementary School in Flagler Beach.

School resource deputies are stationed at all Flagler County high schools and some middle schools, but not at elementary schools.
