While I can understand the need for change in the current climate of our country, I feel personally our school board is making the wrong decision by ousting SSFPD completely from our district.
Taking programs away that help bridge the relationship between them and our youth is wrong! Programs like G.R.E.A.T, Every 15 minutes, Project Yes, the Jr. Police Academy summer program etc help both sides understand more about the other.
While I do agree that PD might have less of an ‘authoritative presence’ on campus – to an extent, but the price of completely ousting them from our schools is far too great and SSFUSD needs to reconsider their stance!
