Police in our schools

For the past several years, a cooperative agreement with the Huber Heights Police Department and the Huber Heights City Schools Board of Education has provided our district with the services of two School Resource Officers. Officer Liz Hogue is our SRO at Wayne High School and Officer Nick Lambert will spend time at Weisenborn and in each of our five elementary schools.

The school resource officers bring many benefits to the staff and students of our schools. First and foremost, police officers help keep our schools safer so that our teachers can teach and our students can learn. The SROs also provide assistance to our staff in the development of our school safety plans. SROs can serve as a link to support services both inside and outside the school environment for staff and students. As the SROs interact with our students, students begin to see our community’s police officers in a positive light. These interactions are especially helpful to our younger students who may not have had the opportunity to meet or talk to a police officer.

The SROs, principals, and staff members become members of a team united in making sure the learning environment in our schools is safe and free of fear. Their presence in our schools sends a strong message that violence of any kind is not acceptable and their positive interactions with our students helps build a foundation of respect and cooperation toward law enforcement. As always, if you have questions about our schools, please contact me at the Administrative Offices (237-6300) or through e-mail at Susan.Gunnell@huberheightscityschools.org.
