Police officers who work in the Pittsburgh Public Schools will not be allowed to carry firearms.

According to a report from the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, the Pittsburgh Public Schools board voted on the issue Wednesday night, and the result was a resounding 8-1 against a proposal to provide guns to school officers.

The school board oversees a district of about 24,000 students.

The report cited several schools boards, including Upper St. Clair, West Jefferson Hills, North Allegheny and Plum, who took steps toward arming school officers.
