Lamar County School District Police Department
24 days ago
The Lamar County School District Police Department employs full-time sworn police officers, and school safety officers, all of whom are assigned to schools throughout Lamar County. While our primary role is to maintain order and security on and near school facilities, school police officers provide far more than standard law enforcement efforts. School Police Officers are responsible for campus patrol, initial case investigations, subsequent follow-up, and, when necessary, making arrests. Additionally, the Officers provide classroom presentations, counsel students and parents, engage students through mentoring, and serve as positive role models to help promote healthy relationships between youth and law enforcement. As a result, the students benefit by being better able to concentrate their time and attention on what matters most: learning and growing.
