SCHOOL CHECKS A SUCCESS IN RIPON

SCHOOL CHECKS A SUCCESS IN RIPON

Ripon CA: In January of 2013, the Ripon Police Department started a daily school visitation program, designed to promote positive interactions with officers, school staff, students and parents. Officers do not disrupt class time. When officers are available, the checks are done primarily during recess, so they can interact with students on the playground.

The department has received a great deal of positive feedback from the community, in support of the school check program. On 08-21-13, Officer Ken Husman visited Weston Elementary School. After speaking to the children and staff on the playground, Husman said, “Meeting the kids on their playground and making them feel safe is great!” Husman said in his opinion, the school check program is making officers more approachable.
