"A Duty to Serve, An Honor to Protect"
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.
Chief Hill graduated from Purvis High School. She served in the US Air Force where she started her law enforcement career. She worked at Purvis Police Department as a patrolman and was assigned to Oak Grove High School for 4 years. Her hobbies include photography and woodwork.
Deputy Chief Clingon or better known as Officer Roy is from Hattiesburg, MS. He graduated from Forrest County Agriculture High School. He has over 30 years of Law Enforcement experience and started his career with the MS Highway Patrol. He retired from MS Hwy Patrol but worked his way up through the ranks from Trooper, Master Sergeant with Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, Troop J Executive Officer, Interim Troop Commander at his retirement. Deputy Chief Clingon has multiple certificates; Level I, Level II and Level III Accident Reconstruction, Cross Trained Entry/Sniper for MHP SWAT, Certified Investigator Program, Crime Scene Investigation and many others. He has been with the Lamar County School District for over 5 years and he says often, “that this is the best job he ever had.” His hobbies include hunting, fishing and kayaking.
On January 25th -27th, 2019 the Lamar County School District Police Department hosted a 32 hour International Police Mountain Bike Association Course at Oak Grove High School.
We were able to train four LCSDPD School Resource Officers and two University of Southern Mississippi Policemen as well. During the training our SROs learned how to go up and down stairs, hop curves, power slide and many other things. The skills they learned will be extremely helpful while patrolling around the district.
Protect and serve as a highly visible law enforcement officer on campus.
Provide safety programs and coordinate special programs in the area of law enforcement.

The district employs certified law enforcement officers as school resource officers. The Police Officers are certified by the State of Mississippi and are vested with the power to keep and preserve the peace on school property, including the power to make arrests, detain violators, and execute all the powers of a constable.
