Officers are assigned to each of the high schools, one to Boulevard Academy and two to the middle schools. School Resource Officers are provided additional education, training and certification. The newest addition to the SRO program is a single use K-9 named “Justice” assigned to Officer Dack Pearson. Justice is a non-aggressive dog, used to detect illegal narcotics, and has already had a positive impact on the schools.

The dog was acquired the end of May, and training began the first of June. Justice was certified by the end of August, and he began his career the beginning of September.

Officer Pearson and Justice are assigned to Boulevard Academy, but make regular visits to the other high schools and also visit the middle schools when requested.
