The Orange Schools welcome School Support Officers! The Moreland Hills Police Department (MHPD) is coordinating details for an increased police presence to support us several hours a day at the elementary and middle schools beginning in January. These officers will support administrators and our School Resource Officer (SRO), Todd Bennett, by interacting with students, engaging in the learning process, and collaborating with our staff. This proactive measure along with ongoing regular visits by our safety forces and the presence of our SRO helps provide students and staff with a safe learning environment. While MHPD officers will primarily serve on these details, officers from our other communities may also be utilized if scheduling needs dictate. Thank you to Moreland Hills Police Lt. Todd Dietzel for organizing the schedule and to our community members who made the initial suggestion.
We take the safety of our students and staff very seriously, and we will continue to develop and maintain
safety practices. And remember, one of the best lines of defense is you. We strongly encourage students, staff, parents, and community members to say something if you see something.
