SANFORD, Fla. - Sanford neighborhood watch officers can keep their guns, according to Sanford police.
The Sanford Police Department is rolling out a revamped neighborhood watch program more than a year after 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was fatally shot by watch volunteer George Zimmerman.
However, police said it will make volunteers sign a document saying the city is not liable for anything that happens if they are armed.
There is a meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. on Tuesday about the new neighborhood watch recommendations. The meeting will be held at Sanford City Hall.
Zimmerman was acquitted of a second-degree murder charge in July. During his trial, evidence was presented that he followed Martin before the two fought and the teen was killed in February 2012.
