Kids today face pressures we could never imagine a few years ago. Cyber bulling, sexting, school violence. No wonder kids and parents want to know what the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is doing to help keep students safe.
Rest assured, we’re on it.
Working in collaboration with the school district and our law enforcement partners, our officers patrol schools every day. Our school resource officers are a welcome presence with parents, school administrators and the kids themselves; it lets them know we’re on their side.
We have evidence based prevention curriculum dealing with teen relationships, digital safety, substance use/abuse and suicide prevention through Y.E.S.S., including our Parent Academy Resources. Our anonymous Text-A-Tip program is a way students can tell us things privately that they don’t want to say out loud.
We’ll listen and be there every day because your kids are our priority.
