The 2018/19 school year has started. For the first time, all public school districts in Ontario County, including the Finger Lakes Technical and Career Center, have law enforcement School Resource Officers assigned.
Thanks to a new cooperative agreement between BOCES, the Office of Sheriff and Ontario County government, Deputy Sheriff David W. Storie has been assigned as the School Resource Officer at the Finger Lakes Technical and Career Center at Wayne Finger Lakes BOCES on County Road 20 in Stanley.
Deputy Sheriffs continue to be assigned as School Resource Officers at Bloomfield, Honeoye, Marcus Whitman, Midlakes, Naples, Red Jacket and Victor school districts.
City police officers are assigned as School Resource Officers in the Canandaigua and Geneva City School districts.
Sheriff Phil Povero stated “the Ontario County Office of Sheriff is proud to partner with our county school districts and provide a uniform law enforcement presence enhancing safety and security for students and educators on our school campuses. We are also enthused that our officers work daily as informational resources for students, faculty, administrators and the community to provide a healthy learning environment which supports the goal of all school districts for each and every student to achieve graduation from high school. Ultimately, School Resource Officers will strive to remove the obstacles that could prevent a child from receiving the quality education that each school district offers.”
