My New Plan for School Safety!!
We are currently talking with school leaders about deputizing a select few teachers that will become Certified Auxiliary Deputies!!
These selected few individuals will go through a comprehensive 120 hours training course this summer and receiving extensive fire arms and medical training. These Deputy Teachers will have the best training, just like our deputies patrolling the streets. Their responsibility will be the education of our children and keeping them safe. BUT in the event that there is a crisis at one of our schools, at that time... and only at that time, they will analyze the situation and take the necessary action.
This plan of action is one of the first in our state and in our country!!. We are excited about this idea as we think outside of the box to help protect and save our children. I am also scheduing a free active shooter class for all law enforcement in Monroe County this summer! Time and date to be announced.
Thank you for your support of all local law enforcement.
Sheriff, Michael K. Neal
