In response to recent events, Howard County police officers are being asked to conduct at least one foot patrol a day at a school (K - 12 private and public schools) in their beat. Not every school will receive a visit every day, but schools will be visited regulary. Officers checkin and meet with the school principal/assistant principal upon arrival. HCPSS is encouraging officers to try to coordinate their checks at pick up and dismissal if possible and invite officers to have lunch in the cafeteria. Thank you for welcoming our local police officers when you see them on campus.
