In a partnership with the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office and the Carroll County Public Schools, the Carroll County Commissioners will fund an increased law enforcement presence in schools.
Effective Wednesday, March 21, 2018, the Security Plan places Carroll County Sheriff’s Deputies at various schools throughout the county. These uniformed Deputies will not only interact with the students and faculty, but also act as a visible deterrent to any criminal activity. This Security Plan will improve safety and security for the remainder of this school year, while discussions on the feasibility of staffing a full School Resource Officer program can be explored.
“The Board of Carroll County Commissioners believes adding the increased law enforcement presence will have a positive impact on school security and will benefit our entire school system,” stated Board President Commissioner Dennis Frazier, “This investment assures the Carroll County community we are committed to a proactive approach to a safe and secure learning environment.”
According to Superintendent of Schools Stephen Guthrie, “We are thankful to the Carroll County Commissioners and the Sheriff for making safety in our schools a top priority.”
