Back to School w/ XXX Sheriff’s Office
On August 21, 2012, the first day of school in XXX County, the Sheriff’s Office Command Staff will be present at all Elementary Schools in the county to welcome students to the new school year.
The Command Staff will greet the children and assist with getting them to their classes if needed. This will help the children learn that law enforcement officers are there to help them should they ever need help and to make them feel at ease approaching a deputy.
The XXX School System is excited about joining forces with the Sheriff’s Office to get the new academic year off to a great safe start.
That is the email I just received from my children’s principal. As some of you know my husband and I have been having an on going dialog with school officials and have been pushing the county pretty hard on doing more proactive things to keep the kids safer. I am not sure what I think of this yet, but I think it is interesting. I do like having an armed presence on campus, even if it is only for one day.
