School Security

OVERVIEW

Carroll County Public School and the Carroll County law enforcement community has for many years had an incredible spirit of collaboration and cooperation.  The Coordinator of School Security and our county law enforcement agencies strive daily to create a positive learning atmosphere in our schools.  This is accomplished by proactive and reactive approaches to law enforcement.  Preventing criminal activity in our schools is the ultimate goal.  A secondary goal is to investigate, arrest, and prosecute those people who violate the law on school property.  These goals are met through the concerted efforts of the Coordinator of Security, law enforcement personnel, school administrators and their staff as well as the students and their parents at each school.
