Safe Schools

The Safe Schools program is dedicated to enhancing the safety and security of the school and reducing risks that would be detrimental to student and staff success. To further the program, officers conduct educative presentations, conduct regular walk-throughs inside and out, interact with the students at lunchtime, work with staff members anytime requested, and provide safety input during the regular District Accountability Committee meetings. Although we are incapable of fully funding an SRO (School Resource Officer) program, we are utilizing an officer as a direct liaison with the school to enhance our information sharing. Officer Suppeland is the facilitator for this group and can be contacted at suppelandb@cityofouray.com.
