Mayor Reed Gusciora announced Tuesday that he's directed Trenton's police to stand guard at city schools until an ongoing contract dispute is fully resolved.

That dispute, between the school district and a private security firm, has led some security officers not to show over concerns about being paid.
Tuesday alone, six city schools were left without any guards.
"Until our police officers at those schools see security officers with their own two eyes, they're going to be standing guard," Mayor Gusciora said.
The mayor has also directed school district leaders to come up with a plan of action to both resolve the contract dispute - and ensure that no school is left unprotected again.
