At the June 8th Lebanon City Council meeting, Lebanon Community School Corporation Superintendent Dr. Jon Milleman and Lebanon School Police Chief Steve Smith presented a status update on the impact of LCSC’s School Resource Officer program. Previously, the school sought, and was granted funding from the City Council to help make the SRO initiative in all LCSC schools a reality.
Accompanying the Power Point presentation and discussion, was a video highlighting the impact School Resource Officers are having on the safety of the school, as well as the well-being of students and school staff.
