Lafayette Parish Sheriff Mark Garber Signs Historic Child Safety Initiative Adopted by Lafayette Parish School System
Lafayette Parish Sheriff Mark Garber is proud to announce a collaboration between his office and the Lafayette Parish School Board to enhance the security of students and faculty throughout the parish.
With the help and cooperation of local law enforcement agencies, the Sheriff and school board have established an agreement which ensures every board-operated school in the parish will be staffed with a qualified School Resource Officer who will be managed by the Sheriff.
The Sheriff’s worked closely with the school board to develop officer training strategies as well as a set of comprehensive rules and regulations that all future School Resource Officers will follow.
As a result of this joint effort, Sheriff Garber is eager to manage the School Resource Officer Program which promotes consistency, accountability and most importantly, the safety of the students and faculties within the parish.
