Sac PD Adopt-a-School program aimed at building community ties

e-Connections Post

Sacramento Police Department and SCUSD are working to strengthen community relationships through a new Adopt-a-School initiative.

Under the program, Sacramento police officers will routinely visit elementary and middle schools to build friendly ties with staff, parents and students. As a result, parents will begin to see patrol cars more often on campuses as uniformed officers introduce themselves to the community.

Schools are encouraged to invite officers to school functions such as read-a-thons or other events that occur during the course of the school day, says SCUSD Safe Schools Manager Nina Delgadillo.
