“Dear Community Members,
In response to the recent tragic event in Uvalde, Texas, the members of the Dartmouth Police Department, along with our School Resource Officers, have decided to increase the presence of police at the various Dartmouth schools for the remainder of the school year.
Though no local threats have been received, this decision was made out of an abundance of caution for both the physical and mental well-being of the students, parents, and staff alike.
Whereas school security falls under the purview of the school department, we have always worked closely with them to ensure the safety of our children. We strongly encourage you to stay involved by sharing your opinions and ideas not only with them, but also with us, on how we can collectively build upon our exemplary safety record.
It goes without saying, that the safety of Dartmouth’s children is our top priority!
Brian P. Levesque
Chief of Police.”
