School Security Officer

School Security Officer
Dep. Regan Foerster

The intent of this position is to provide presence and visibility at each of our seven school buildings in the county via random patrols and appearances throughout each school day.

The deputy assigned to this position will be tasked with contacting each school to inquire about immediate or future safety concerns. This officer will be expected to respond to emergent complaints while present at the school. In-depth investigations will continue to require a call to Central Dispatch for general complaint assignment.
