Return of SRO position is great news
Baldwin will once again have a School Resource Officer through the Baldwin City Police Department and that's as good of news as we've had in a long time.
For the past year and a half, Baldwin has been without an SRO because of funding shortages within the school district and the police department. But, a grant has come through to return the position.
In light of what has occurred at Baldwin High School, especially in the last two years with a pepper spray incident and a shotgun brandished in the parking lot, the need for the SRO position is clear.
Would the SRO have made a difference in either, both or other situations? We think so. Baldwin has had a good experience with both previous SROs and they have been sorely missed.
Join us in welcoming Greg Schiffelbein, the new SRO, to Baldwin. We're glad you're here.
