OPD Takes a Proactive Approach to School Safety

oboro police 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (12/12/13) - The Owensboro Police Department announced the implementation of the Adopt A School program, which is a proactive partnership with our city schools to provide enhanced safety to our communities’ children.
 
In an effort to promote safety in our city schools, the Owensboro Police Department will assign patrol officers to schools, within the particular officer’s patrol sector. The officers will make random visits to his/her assigned schools several times each week to ensure the officer is periodically seen by students and staff, at varying hours of the school day.

The Owensboro Police Department’s goal is to promote a greater law enforcement presence and deter crime. The assigned officers will also learn the school’s layouts and lockdown procedures to ensure better responses by law enforcement in the event of an emergency. After school hours, officers will be responsible for checking the security of buildings located on school property.
 
The Adopt A School program is a proactive approach to the safety of our school children and staff, and we think it will strengthen community relationships between the Owensboro Police Department and those served.
