Police in Putnam County are trying to put parents’ minds a little more at ease as they prepare to send their children back to school.
With many parents on edge after the shootings in Uvalde and Buffalo, Putnam County Sheriff Kevin McConville met with officials from all of the county's school districts to talk about the measures to be taken to increase security in schools.
The county’s “Team Up for School Safety” is a collaborative effort between the school districts, the Sheriff's Department, and the Putnam County Department of Social Services to increase security in all schools.
"Our deputies are prepared, well-trained, and ready to ensure Putnam County's children will have a safe school year," says Sheriff McConville.
McConville says officers are well trained and ready for what will hopefully never happen here at home.
