[ARCHIVED] Safe Schools Initiative Announced

The City of Milton and the School District of Milton are proud to announce the Safe School Initiative, starting in the 2013-2014 school year, which will assign school resource officers to all public schools, K-12, located in the City of Milton.

The overall goals of the Safe Schools Initiative are to allow students to develop positive relationships with police officers and to help with overall security of the schools. During the officers’ time at the schools, they will review security plans, visit classrooms, walk the hallways, hold meetings with teachers, and provide other services as needed to the school.

“For 180 days a year, our schools are filled with over 4,000 students, teachers, and other staff,” Mayor Brett Frazier stated. “It’s our job as a City to keep them safe. I’m proud that we can now say that every school within our jurisdiction will have a police officer assigned to that school.”

Mayor Frazier went on to state, “This is a shift in the way we think about school safety in Milton. I believe, as I know our Police staff does, that a regular and consistent police presence in our schools not only helps prevent the bad, but encourages the good by forging positive relationships between kids and cops. Those relationships will pay dividends for our City and for our children.”

A police officer will visit Milton East Elementary School, Milton West Elementary School, Northside Intermediate School on a weekly basis. Chief Dan Layber is assigned to Milton East Elementary School, Officer Michael Chesmore is assigned to Milton West Elementary School, and Lieutenant John Conger is assigned to Northside Intermediate School. The Milton High School will maintain their regular full-time school resource officer who is Officer Jim Martin, and the Milton Middle School will maintain their part-time school resource officer who is Officer Jim Schumacher.

Chief Dan Layber also commented on the new Safe School Initiative by stating, “The Milton Police Department is happy to strengthen our relationship with the Milton School District by visiting the schools on a regular basis and to continue our already strong presence at the High School and Middle School. “ Chief Layber also said, “Our presence will enhance school safety and provide for increased communication between the police and school staff. The increased contact with students should foster a more positive relationship and help provide positive role models for students.”
