A message from the Chief of Police:
Our children are our greatest resources. It is incumbent upon society to protect and nurture those resources. To that end, the Union Police Department has teamed up with the Union School District to develop the School Resource Officer Program. Our School Resource Officers are, first and foremost, police officers, who are assigned directly to the Union School District. They work with our schools to help provide a safe learning environment by examining and making recommendations regarding safety and security protocols, enforcing laws and rules, providing security where appropriate, and by assisting with educational programs where law enforcement officers have special knowledge and insight, such as drug abuse and crime issues. We strive to have a positive impact upon those who, in turn, will shape future generations.
SRO Officers, Jim Wells, Rod Tappe and Rick Neace
