Metcalfe County Hires Additional School Resource Officer

 

EDMONTON, Ky. (April 4, 2019) – When Metcalfe County students return from Spring Break on April 8, there will be a new school resource officer to greet them.

 

The Metcalfe County School District will now have two school resource officers. Officer Charles Massey is the new school resource officer at Metcalfe County Elementary School. Officer Josh Neal will remain the school resource officer at Metcalfe High School and Metcalfe County Middle School.

 

The Metcalfe County Board of Education approved at its December meeting adding a school police department to the district called SLEO, which stands for Special Law Enforcement Officer. The certified officers will have jurisdiction on school grounds and at some school events held off campus.

 

This is a continuation of implementing ideas from the community forum hosted last spring. District safety coordinator Chris Huffman says those efforts will continue. “We are regularly looking for practical solutions that will increase our campus safety,” Huffman said. “Adding an additional resource officer and developing a SLEO program is just one part of a long term effort.”

 

Both Officer Neal and Officer Massey were former deputies at the Metcalfe County Sheriff’s Department.
