Police - School Liaison

School Resource Officers are trained to work with school officials to perceive and analyze problems with children before they become a serious problem for society. The department, in cooperation with the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District, assigns one officer to the Middleton High School, and one officer to Kromrey Middle School on a full-time basis. The purposes of this program are prevention, referral and education.

October was a warm and busy month with 40 calls for service requiring reports, investigations and/or citations at the Middleton High School and Clark Street Community School.  Some of those calls included 911 misdials, disturbances, drug investigations, lost property, fights, thefts, and EMS calls.  Several students were also cited for retail theft at the nearby PDQ.

In October, Officer O'Connor helped facilitate a fitness test for the DEA at the Middleton High School.  He also worked at two home football games and the Homecoming Dance.  There were citations issued for underage alcohol violations and disorderly conduct at the dance.

Officer O'Connor spoke with two Law and Justice classes for an hour each, helped students make a video for a class, and sat on an interview panel for the new head Varsity Softball Coach.  He also assisted with a lockdown drill at Northside Elementary School.

Outside of the school, Officer O'Connor attended three days of Special Events Team training and Department wide In-Service training in October.

October has been a busy month!  I’ve spent most of my time teaching the GREAT Program to all of 6th grade.  I’ve started my coordination with elementary schools to teach K-4th grade students the Keeping Safe Program.  I participated in a practice Lock Down drill at North Side Elementary and attended an Emergency Response meeting where we practiced how to deal with scenarios that could affect the school environment.  I’ve also been attending weekly attendance and behavioral meetings.

During this month, I’ve handled several calls for service.  These included disturbances, harassment complainants, daytime loitering, and a suspicious vehicle which led to the driver being arrested for possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.  A parent was also cited for contributing to truancy of a child.
