Law enforcement at elementary schools starting Thursday

By

When Alachua county public school resumes tomorrow, there will be something new at elementary schools.  The Alachua County Sheriff’s Office and the Gainesville Police Department will have a deputy or officer in each elementary school.   Florida’s 89.1 WUFT-FM’s Forrest Smith talked with Sheriff’s Information Officer Art Forgey about how this new program will be implemented, and what students, parents and teachers will be seeing.

The elementary schools in the city limits of Gainesville will be staffed by GPD.  Outside the city limits sheriff’s office deputies will staff the schools.
