Meet with business owners/managers, leaders in the community, neighborhood watch members and assess:

• Security Needs

• Current trends in crime

• Develop action plans to reduce property loss

• Become points of contact for future needs

• Provide greater security for students in and around school by:

• Directed patrols around school grounds before and after school, and during school related events.

• Conducting walk-throughs when school is in session and during school related events.

**We have just established a School Safety Committee comprised of one part-time officer who works closely with the schools, and 3 full time officers. The officers meet quarterly to discuss school safety among themselves and with school officials. The officers also conduct training with the schools on a regular basis.
