CHIEF OF POLICE NEWPORT POLICE DEPARTMENT
             Guest Column by Chief Leonard Macdaid, Newport Police Department
I am looking for help in supporting the School Resource Position. if you feel passionate about school safety and providing an environment where students feel healthy you are invited to a School Board Meeting on Tuesday, March 19th at Nokomis Regional High, school library. The meeting begins at 6:30 PM. If you can not attend in person, a letter of support can be sent to the Newport Police Department, 21 Water Street, Newport, ME 04953, c/o Chief Macdaid.
Now is the time to act. When the new high school opens next year the population of students will increase from 900 to 1600. An FBI report released in June of 2018 revealed that 2017 had the highest number of incidents on record in any year since they started tracking school shootings in 2000. In 81% of school attacks, at least one other person-usually a peer-knew about it ahead of time. 71% of perpetrators targeted their school because they felt bullied.
The main component of a School Resource Officer’s job is not only school security, but to foster a healthy climate, building strong relationships with students so they will report threats and suspicious behavior. We need to provide students the tools needed to report a problem before it escalates.
If you are a parent or grandparent who is concerned about school safety, please join me next Tuesday to express to the School Board our concerns. Together as a community we can make a difference.
