    Bernie, an interesting topic for all SRO and school safety officers may be the complexity of the relationship between LEO and school administrators. Not all admins are willing to share school “problems”and quite often LEO’s get notified late in the game. It’s a political dynamic and sometimes quite frustrating. We can’t complain too much or we’ll not be told anything or possibly get moved.
