CCSO and CCPS unite for community and student safety

The Clayton County Sheriff’s Office and Clayton County Public Schools have joined forces to keep our schools and communities safe by adding law enforcement substations to four campuses.

“We hope to enhance the security of the areas immediately surrounding the substation sites through our added visibility there, increase the presence of CCSO in the community-at-large, and facilitate more interaction between deputies and citizens and their children,” says Sheriff Kem Kimbrough.

The program will be tested at: Northcutt Elementary/North Clayton Middle School (Hwy 314 at Norman Drive, College Park); Harper Elementary/Sequoyah Middle School (Valley Hill Road, Riverdale); East Clayton Elementary (Ellenwood Road at I-675, Ellenwood); and Lovejoy High School (McDonough Road, Lovejoy).

Initially, substations will be open only Monday thru Friday for eight hours a day with posted hours of operation. The pilot program will begin within 30 days and if successful, four additional substations will open.

But not everyone sees this program positively. Some refer to this as a “school to prison pipeline”, and believe this union could hurt our kids more than help.

“We hope that the increased law enforcement presence in [CCPS] does not result in the violation of students’ rights,” says Chara Fisher Jackson, Legal Director of the ACLU of Georgia. “There should be a distinction between disciplinary misconduct to be addressed by the school and incidents that involve real and immediate threats to public safety that may be better addressed by criminal justice officials.” Jackson hopes that CCPS will consider adopting a formal memorandum of understanding between the parties to promote respect and emphasize students’ rights.

“The health of the majority of the community is my main concern, especially our children. These substations will increase our ability to protect those we are charged with protecting; if that means more people go to prison, most reasonable citizens will support that,” adds the Sheriff. “Any characterization of this program as an attempt to incarcerate innocent children demonstrates a complete lack of understanding of not only law enforcement activities, but also a lack of understanding of the aims of the program.”

Are the substations a good idea for CCPS and the community?

Our Board of Education is asking residents to help provide for three needy families this holiday season. Each BOE member will donate $20 to the cause, and are asking citizens to contribute by dropping non-perishable items into a box at the front of the board room. There will be three opportunities to donate: October 25,  November 1, and November 15. Donations will be presented at the December 6 BOE meeting to the CCPS Director for Homeless Families.

The ACLU brings up some good points. However, I don’t think they are necessarily valid….yet. IF the substations end up causing a “police state” situation in the schools, then yes, the objections are valid. Big “if”.

This seems to be a case of “community policing” and that concept has many pluses. EG community/police interaction; student/police interaction…hopefully leading to trust and better law enforcement. And this might also be called for if the discipline problems and criminal activity in these areas are so dire as to call for sheriff deputy/police intervention.

BTW, RE the boy drowning at “Atlanta Lake”….where is this lake? If it’s International Park, “The Beach”, I can’t imagine the lake having such heavy undergrowth as to hamper the search as much as it has. I also thought The Beach was closed for the season.

Public Safety is probably the most misunderstood and delusional illusion ever was fabricated by our civil society. However; It might serve a viable purpose in our school systems, with the use of plain clothes Law Enforcement Officers, that possess highly skilled interactive people skills.
I think that our Sheriff might be setting himself up for some lawsuits, in the near future, by having his Deputies ride herd on the children of this county; this may prove to be a mistake.

However; We had to tolerate the gross mistakes of the previous Sheriff,for 4 long years,so, I will have no other choice to go with the flow on this; But, these are our children that we are talking about and they don’t lie, or do they ?

I have only one piece of advice to relay to the Sheriff; Make Sure That The Deputies uses a private restroom and locks the door behind him.

This could be a good thing if the police presence will keep the kids who don’t wanna learn in check so those that do wanna learn can do so. It could also show the cops in a different light. It’s worth a try not much else has worked and that goes for public schools across the country not just in Clayton.

I voted “Not Sure”. At first glance, the idea could be a good one…or a bad one. I would support the idea of a substation simply because (like it or not) there are students who attend middle/high schools who have no interest in education. There are also too many thugs and thug-wannabes…not to mention a soaring crime rate. I don’t really know that students have actual RIGHTS, referring to the ACLU’s charge that students have rights. If the Sheriff were to be assuming control (in any form) of disciplinary action on the school campus, then there is certainly something wrong with the substation. I do not know if I would be entirely comfortable with the idea. The East Clayton site would be good for a couple of reasons: the location of the school, the traffic that DOES NOT abide by the 25 mph school zone, and the traffic from the QT/Mcdonalds/Waffle House/675. That is a dangerous area. If they could provide traffic control and compliance, it would be great. But what kind of issues are at East Clayton Elementary that would require a CCSO substation???? Other than traffic??? I just don’t feel comfortable saying I would support something like this or to oppose it. Has anyone involved the parents of these schools in the decision to test a substation at their schools? If so, what was the response? If not, why were the parents not involved? Perhaps the Sheriff could enlighten.

When I heard about the proposal for the sheriff dept substations on school campuses, I wondered why this needs to be a part of school operations. Have our children’s behavior gotten this bad? If the purpose is to curb bad behavior, wouldn’t it be better to partner up with civic groups, parents, the clergy and other stakeholders for a non-intimidating presence and skills that help rather than to punish? You know, our children aren’t afraid of law enforcement officers nor do I believe many of them like uniformed enforcement officers. Why can’t we find a better solution? How to we expect for Clayton County’s reputation to improve when we give a signal like this which others could perceive as worsening disciplinary behavior in our school system? How does it reflect in quest for us to regain non conditional accreditation?
A school-to-prison pipeline?? – maybe not; the current system is doing enough of that already but if this partnership moves forward and we find more kids being stuffed into juvenile detention (and onward to prison), then we’ll have our answer and so would those outside Clayton County who might be considering relocation here.

Ok –
There is a robocall going on right now for the Lee Scott campaign – it is a cheap robocall cause it sounds like he did it on an old Atari set. It is accusing his opponent as not believing in GOD . Funny – his opponent is a church member and goes frequently. Lee Scotts church is the all-mightly dollar. Lee’s robocall also goes on to accuse his opponent of being corrupt and giving out no-bid contracts. If this bullying blowhard ever went to a meeting or ever even read the minutes he would know that it was his opponent who tried in vain to stop the lock-step marching of the three Wade stooges. I see that his henchmen are also removing signs and his own signs are all illegally placed. Lee Scott is nothing but a LIAR. He photoshopped pictures 2 years ago to discredit others. He threatened citizens and public officails. Lee’s plan to get his wife to win – then make her quit did not work and now he thinks that as a Rebuplican the voters will vote blindly – and not remember his past. Lee – the voters – black and white – would like you to to find another hole to crawl into – hey , why don’t you try Mississippi or even Haiti. Maybe you can bamboozle them.

I have a question about these sub-stations. Where is the manpower to man these station going to come from. I have a family member that works for the Sheriff’s Office, and they do not have the personnel to serve warrants or civil papers. Civil papers are expiring because they are not being served in a timely manner and warrants are abundant. So, I think the Sheriff is neglecting his primary duties in order to look good for the public!

@ East Clayton there is a trailer in the parking lot. I asked my daughter about it and she said that is where the sherrif’s office is. She has explained that the deputy speaks to the children about being good stewards in the community, and paying attention to your surroundings. As we came out of the McDonald’s directly across from the school on Sunday evening, she saw 2 students jump the fence and proceed between the buildings. So I am unsure if teaching children safety and concern for his/her community is a bad thing. Also, having LEO in your community cannot hurt. I would like to see Clayton County go back to community policing that was being done under Chief Turner. Since he left I ahve not seen police in the Rex area unless they are going to a crisis with lights on.

I am a volunteer for the Vote.JamesBrown.com campagin. This week I and and a friend have been posting campaign signs for James Brown. We have played by the rules and posted the signs in legal locations along the right-of-ways. Many of them are near (and along) the same locations as all the Scott signs (David Scott, Lee Scott, Scott, etc.)

However, when we return to those locations the next day or so we notice our signs are gone. It is evident that there are people in our county will do whatever it takes to maintain “business as usual” in this county when it comes to politics.

This is just another example of how difficult it is to get the word out about a man running that is sincere about trying to turn it around for our county. I believe James Brown and (in that) know he is not running out of greed or pride. He is running with a sincere conviction to help improve the quality of life for ALL CITIZENS of our county.

In closing for those citizens of Georgia House District 77, if you have a true desire to better our communities, fight crime and corruption, and reinstate free-market principles for jobs, then Vote James Brown. However if “party” is more important to you than what a person stands for, then continue to vote the “status quo.” As for me, I have had enough of those party bosses that want to keep us on Uncle Sam’s plantation of dependency while they continue to their greed and corruption as they DO NOTHING for those hurting in the county.

We need to fight crime.
We need to cease corruption.
We need to bring back business and jobs.
We need to take action in improving our schools.
We need to support candidates that will work to TURN IT AROUND!

As a resident here, I am very dismayed at the apathy of our citizens. We complain, but we don’t vote to bring true change as we continue to watch the steady decline of our quality of life. Wake up and smell the rose (or in our case, the stink).

When successful schools are asked the question, “What single most important factor do you feel contributes to their overall academic and social success? The answer is overwhelmingly and consistently, Parents in Schools, Parents in Schools, Parents In Schools. Not Police in Schools. There is a significant amount of data and studies that support this assertion. Let’s not fail another whole generation of children by employing tactics that do nothing but track them for the number one profit making business in America, the Prison Industry. Don’t take my word for it, do your own due diligence.

So I say staff these portables with parents and community stakeholders and it will raise the bar for everyone! Dismantle the School to Prison Pipeline. Focus on academic rigor and social enrichment.

I recently attended the Governor’s Honors Program Interviews Finals. There was one student from Clayton County for the Biology Awards. He does not attend CCPS although, he lives here. I was elated and happy for this 15 year old, I was saddened by the absence of CCPS students.

The Drug Dealers have been using our youth as their “Mules” to Carry & Sell Drugs in places that they cannot go; This is a Historical Fact.
Why ? Because the Youth will not be facing incarceration time for their role in the drug business.
That is just one reason, why I don’t object to having the presence of a more controlling authorities around our children.

Unfortunately, this move is PURE POLITICS. CCSO should focus on their 3 core missions, safe and efficient operation of the jail,courthouse security and the service of criminal warrants/civil process. In a tight economy with diminishing resources I would bet that its all the SO can do to fulfill these critical functions. All else is superfluous. This is just a feel good high profile program to polish the sheriff’s image…..he is after all a politician. I happen to think Sheriff Kem is a MAJOR UPGRADE over the last disaster we had as sheriff, but I think he’s off base on this one. The schools have resource officers from the county or city police depts. In most urban counties that have a county police dept the SO tends to feel under appreciated and wants to drift over into the PD’s lane. We can not afford the duplication of effort in this economy. You often see SO units at CCPS events because they are not being held hostage to the tyranny of answering endless 911 calls like CCPD. In the meantime, I pray that Chief Porter and Sheriff Kem will forge a close working relationship if they haven’t already.

How could I forget Walking Small’s attempt to turn the sheriff’s dept into a police dept? The sheriff is charged with issuing warrants and running the jail. It might not be a bad idea for the POLICE dept to have more mini precincts. It’s a terrible idea to have such precincts in schools.

We need a separate thread to debate the issue of abolishing the police dept and giving all the policing powers to the sheriff.

OMG. I got a couple of good laughs from reading the other comments. I also saw a glimmer of “hope”, dare I say? Parents in schools? What kind of silly notion is that? Don’t parents send their kids to school to be raised and disciplined by the system?? Oh, well…sarcasm aside I will share again. Parents in schools, parents being parents, parents doing their JOB as parents would certainly address many issues. I like the idea of staffing those trailers with parents and volunteers. I knew Victor Hill when he was with CCPD. WalkingSmall had an ego then but it had yet exploded…that took years. The CCPD presence would be a better alternative but there are major problems over there…understaffed, underpaid, criminals in uniform (I could go on and on). I agree with most of the comments here. Get our parents involved. And, for the record, I have no problems with the arrests of the criminal elements in our schools. They’re not in school for the education…opportunity and motive. Yes, the SO could do well to remember their primary duties here in Clayton and work on getting those addressed efficiently and effectively. I support any efforts to get the parents back into the schools.

I HOPE everyone here would agree that Parents in the schools would indeed be ideal. But then what do we do when the parents are only consistent in their LACK of participation in the education of their own kids? Sadly, I don’t believe that this move toward mini-stations in the schools is going to cause a mass invasion of volunteering parents into the schools to prevent this from happening.

It’s all well and good to continue begging parents to step up, but in the meantime there is reality to deal with. There are many many scenarios that may play out with the SO presence in these schools and every one of them is dependent (almost 100% I would say) on the character and attitude of the individual officers assigned to these stations.

The kids need positive role models, mentors, adults that are able to relate to kids and show actual compassion and genuine interest. IF and that’s a big IF, the SO could conjure up enough officers that possess all of the above, then this could be a positive thing. If not, then it will be a nightmare.

Either way, all the blaming and anger between political camps is just distracting to the issue of our need to deal with REALITY, and not spend all of our energy and time arguing for the ideal.

I wasn’t gone to bite, but I have too. For everyone person who thinks Victor Hill was a bad Sheriff, I talk to five other that think otherwise. Just because you do not hear much from Sheriff Kimbrough, doesn’t mean he is doing a “great job”. The Sheriff Office is so disfunctional. I would take Hill anyday of the week over Kimbrough!
