Law Enforcement and Fire Safety Agencies
Because of the many support services which the local law enforcement and fire departments provide to the schools, staff and students, the Board of Education desires to maintain the best possible relationships with those agencies, bearing in mind the responsibility the schools have to see that the legal rights of staff and students are properly protected.
The Superintendent is directed to establish lines of communication with local law enforcement and fire departments in order to effect the kinds of cooperation needed for the:
Security of the school facilities;
Safety of students and staff; and
Better education of the students concerning law enforcement and fire prevention.
