SROs

On this day we remember the brave first responders who continually put their lives on the line to help our citizens. Thank you to all, but we want to give a special thanks to our team of School Resource Officers and Security Officers in the Triad School District. The SROs main focus is the physical safety of the schools, but they also spend time working on mental health and building positive relationships ranging from Pre-K through Seniors and even with our staff. The expansion of the safety team puts Triad at four SROs and three Security Officers. 


The District hired its first SRO in 1995 who was assigned to Triad High School. In 2006, Officer Heinle was hired to take over and today he is Triad’s most senior SRO. From the start, Officer Heinle was committed to building relationships with students and staff, assessing the facility and its procedures and taking a lead on how to prepare and respond to school violence. His involvement and leadership in national and state organizations has had a positive impact on the school climate, staff, and student training and the development of safety plans and teams. Below, read more about SRO Heinle for his national involvement to ensure that SROs are used effectively in schools and to show his positive influence on the development of the District’s Safety Team.  Kip recently was published in The Journal of School Safety explaining the stress and value of being a School Resource Officer (http://bit.ly/TriadSROArticle).


At TMS, Deputy C.J. Reckman was the first middle school SRO 4 years ago. Aside from building an everlasting bond with staff members, Deputy Reckman focuses on improving our digital security by mastering our video surveillance. Increasing our video surveillance allows the district to ensure the safety of all students and staff to deter criminal activity and properly investigate crimes that do occur. 


At the elementary level, we have two new SROs this year, Officer Mickey Jader and Officer Sydney Ahlmeyer. Officer Jader’s primary buildings are Silver Creek and C.A. Henning and Officer Ahlymeyer’s are St. Jacob and Marine. Both will spend most of their time educating and preparing our young students with skills to prepare them for the future. Officer Jader is our D.A.R.E instructor and will complete 6th grade in the fall and complete 5th grade in the spring. Officer Ahlmeyer will focus on teaching our students and staff on the use of our Safety Backpacks and conducting hands-on training with ALICE.


The focus at all levels is to provide training and situational awareness our students can take with far beyond their time at Triad. SROs put the decision making power in the students and teachers to help foster leaders to take charge in emergency situations. Beyond just the SROs, we have an emergency application to keep staff up to date on situations at their fingertips.


To help with the number of students and visitors at THS we have two daytime and one evening security officers, John Zweck, Jamie Johnson, & Jacob Maxey. The three security officers focus on being aware of the visitors and conducting physical checks of the high school campus.
