Letter to Editor: Keep SSFPD in our Schools

South San Francisco, CA  July 25, 2021 by  A. Romano

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!

well the one good thing out of this bone
head left wing stupidity, is that these
bleeding heart idiots, can now be held
responsible in court, for their stupidity,
letting the foxes rule the chicken houses was never a good idea, at least
now a good attorney will hold these
left wing idiots accountable, and the cops can wash their hands of these
idiots, and turn their backs on these radical extremists, when they eventually
will need bailing out, karma baby, be
careful for what you wish, LOL

This article misses the mark and shows limited knowledge of City sponsored youth programs. The truth is the majority of city youth programs are NOT impacted and will continue and beneficial. These programs foster relationships with young people OUTSIDE of schools. The ones objected to are the ones held during class time, and target people of color.

There is nothing that the police on our campuses do that enriches our children’s lives. The half million dollars going to these cops could go to hiring mental health professionals, more counselors, and especially professional tutors. The help for our children to increase their ability to bond with counselors and get help with their studies to confidently move through to graduation will not come from cops on campus.
