Searches Recently Conducted at Schools as Part of Safety Program

School Resource Officers (SRO’s) and school administrators were assisted by K-9’s from the Sheriff’s Office, Leesburg Police Department, and DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office in conducting searches at schools recently.

These searches are important in keeping our schools, faculty, staff and students safe. K-9’s searched lockers and vehicles at Cedar Bluff and Spring Garden Schools for narcotics or contraband.

Lieutenant Jordan Kelley, SRO Unit Supervisor stated that “Having a good working relationship with neighboring departments is important,” adding “we appreciate the cooperation from the Leesburg Police Department and the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office helping us keep our campuses drug free.”

Other random searches will be done at a later date.  Through these random searches, we hope to deter anyone from bringing anything to our campuses.
