Trimble Co. Sheriff's Deptartment helping to keep Trimble Co. students safe! sheriff

Law enforcement from the Trimble Co. Sheriff’s Office provided training for the Trimble County School District this summer in preparing and making sure they know what to do in the event of an active shooting or intruder situation.

Trimble Co. District Employees gathered at Bedford Elementary School and the Trimble Co. JR/SR High School to learn more about what actions they can take in an active shooting situation.  It wasn't just presentations and discussions, the Trimble Co. Sheriff's Office took teachers into the classrooms and showed them first hand steps and resources that they can use to help protect the students. The staffs in each school were provided baseline knowledge, best practice and protocol and also some confidence in their ability to apply that knowledge in an intruder situation.

The training also provided insight into protocol the district can follow to help reduce the access that an intruder would have into the building.  As a result, visitor and parent check-in procedures were revised and will be implemented this school year.  We don’t want to inconvenience anyone with our new check-in procedures, but we feel it's our obligation to do everything we can to maintain the safety of our students. 

The ‘Visitor Check-in Procedures’ can be found here.
