Prescott Valley School Increases Police Presence

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

The campus has security doors, self-locking push bar exit doors and locked gates. Yet even with all these features,  officials have chosen to add an extra layer of security. 

In partnership with the Prescott Valley Police Department, there will now be a police presence on campus every day. The school is funding the weekly rotation of police through contributions, donations and grants. 

A police officer will remain on campus for most of the school day, and the officer will receive a daily orientation regarding daily schedules and requirements. Police will also speak to students about following rules and preventing bullying, while helping teachers during recess and other breaks. 

Prescott Valley School is located on the east end of town off Mendocino Drive. Students K-8 attend campus on the north side of East Lorna Lane, while middle schoolers grades 5-8 are on the south side. The school remains proactive by initiating drills, extensive threat preparation and training, and consistent updates to its emergency response protocols.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
