SCHOOL SAFETY & EDUCATION
Return of the D.A.R.E Program
In addition, implement SRO Presence and responsibilities throughout all county schools.
Youth engagement through Sumner County Community Drug Action Team (SCCDAT) and the Highway Patrol.
“Meet the Sheriff” and CADET opportunities Annually.
Raising 3 children in this County and watching the lack of attention to our youth has been very disappointing.
They are the Future. We have Time. This will be a high priority.
RETURN OF THE K-9 PROGRAM
Sumner County’s K-9 Program ended abruptly around 2018 and has not returned.
Among the Boyd appointed Staff will be 2 currently certified K-9 handlers, who are Sumner County residents
A.) K-9’s paired with a trained handler provide an above-human element to crime enforcement.
B.) K-9 duties:
-Drug Detection (patrol, school, casino)
-Drug Interdiction (interstate emphasis)
-Lost & Missing Persons
In addition to Patrol, K-9 would also be resourced and readily available to SRO for school sniffs, calls, and assignments.
RE-BUILD THE RESERVE PROGRAM
Full details outlining this sector are explained in the Budget pledge section.
We have a lot of volunteers excited for the opportunity to return assisting this department and providing their time and talents to increase and expand service across the county.
