Otsego County Sheriff Richard Devlin is proposing that the county fund two Deputy Sheriff Positions to be designated as School Resource Officers according to a statement on the Otsego County Sheriff's Office Facebook page. Devlin says it’s important to enhance rapport with students, establish a larger presence in schools and to promote school safety. The SRO will assist each school’s administrators in their efforts toward security preparedness and prevention of incidents along with being a liaison between the Sheriff’s Office and school administrators to coordinate in-school Active Shooter Training. Devlin says this will be discussed further at the May Public Safety Meeting.
