Now Pembroke Pines is testing that pledge.
In a letter to School Superintendent Robert Runcie, Mayor Frank Ortis has asked for help in paying for police officers at every Pembroke Pines school.
Although Ortis mentions the promises made during the promotion of the bond issue, the mayor wants money from the general budget. The bond money is restricted to capital improvements and repairs.
The refusal of the school system to pay for officers at each school has long annoyed many Broward cities.
