Monitoring of School Guard Activity Continued in Pápa

On 22 October 2020, Ombudsman Dr. Ákos Kozma visited the Weöres Sándor Primary School in Pápa, where he was received by Deputy Head of Institution Mrs. Ágota Kárpáti Vései, Head of Pápa Police Department, Chief Counsel of Police, Police Lieutenant-Colonel Mr. Csaba Szappan, and School District Director of Pápa School District Centre Ms. Andrea Egyházi.

The deputy head of institution and the school guard on duty at the school reported about the experience gathered in relation to the school guard system. The Commissioner for Fundamental Rights inquired, among others, about the reception of the recently introduced school guard system among the students and their parents, whether there had been any extreme cases of violence, and whether the school guard had had to intervene at the educational institution so far. School guards began to work this September in 419 schools all over the country.
