Sheriff Scott Anslum, School Resource Officers from the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office, law enforcement officials from police departments throughout St. Mary Parish, and Superintendent Lenny Armoto and his staff met on Monday morning to review security measures and available resources that are in place in an effort to ensure the safety of our students.
Throughout the summer the Sheriff’s Office, as well as other agencies, have conducted active shooter drills in selected schools throughout the parish to help prepare not only law enforcement officers but also teachers and administrators to respond in emergency situations.
“We are doing a lot in our schools in regards to safety,” said Armato. “We want our parents to feel that our kids are safe and we don’t have to worry.”
