The Seneca Valley School District, in conjunction with the Jackson Township Police Department, provides Police service to the Seneca Valley School District's Secondary Campus. The School Resource Officer, who is a sworn Police Officer in Jackson Township, is on the High School campus during regular school hours, during the school year.

A few words from the School Resource Officer:h J 1

Welcome! We want to take a moment and thank you for your interest in the Jackson Township School Resource Officer page.

This section is designed to give you a better idea of some of the things that the School Resource Officers do on the campus of the Seneca Valley Senior High School Campus. In addition to handling, investigating and filing charges for incidents and offenses that are done on the campus, we also patrol all three school buildings (Senior High, Intermediate and Middle school) and grounds of this campus. We work closely with school administrators and personnel to further a safe learning environment for the students and staff. At various times of the year, We go into the classroom as a guest "instructor" and speak to health classes and other various classes anytime a teacher and or administrator requests us pending on the subject matter.

In addition, We are also available to students to answer any questions they may have, such as what to do with a speeding citation, a problem they might be having in a class or at work, what it takes to become a police officer, or questions about college.

Please feel free to contact either of us.

From the Jackson Township Police Department

Dear Parents:

In order to provide the highest levels of security for students, faculty and staff, the Jackson Township Police Department has established a security plan in cooperation with Seneca Valley Schools and other Public Safety Agencies that may respond to the secondary campus in case of an emergency. In most situations other than a fire or immediate need to evacuate a building, all campus buildings will be locked down in order to make sure that students are safe and accounted for. All students will be moved to locations as necessary under the close supervision of school officials and public safety personnel.

The school will not be accessible to anyone other than public safety personnel and equipment, and roads leading to the main campus will be blocked prohibiting non-emergency traffic.

While we are aware that this may cause concern for parents, we ask for your support in allowing the public safety agencies and school officials to do their emergency tasks with due diligence and without disruption. In order to do this we ask that you DO NOT CALL the school or DO NOT COME TO THE CAMPUS. School officials will make provisions through news media, SVTV and the Seneca Valley School District Website (www.svsd.net) to pass along information in an informative and timely manner. Please understand that this plan has been put together with the safety of all concerned in mind and is the result of planning, training and lessons learned from actual emergencies.

In addition, please be advised that the following items are PROHIBITED on school property (by students, staff and visitors alike:

1. Tobacco

2. Alcohol

3. Narcotics

4. Firearms

5. Edged weapons

6. Unauthorized Persons

All vehicles, persons and containers that are on school property are subject to search.

The Jackson Township Police Department and all Public Safety Agencies, in cooperation with Seneca Valley School District, thank you for your understanding and cooperation in these matters of extreme importance.

Officer Hunter Ryan
