El Dorado County Superintendent of Schools Vicki Barber and other local superintendents met Jan. 16with local law enforcement agencies to continue collaborative efforts regarding school safety.

 Sheriff John D’Agostini, Placerville Chief of Police George Nielson, South Lake Tahoe Chief of Police Brian Uhler and El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson were in attendance.

For years, schools have worked closely with law enforcement and other public agencies to ensure  maintainenance of the safest learning environments possible. Campus visits have been conducted by law enforcement agencies so they become familiar with a school campus before an emergency and/or disaster occurs.

Districts provide school maps and emergency contact information in an online forum which can be accessed by law enforcement prior to arriving on scene. The goal continues to be to plan up-front so that the schools are as effective as possible during an emergency.

Tim Smith, superintendent of the Mother Lode Union School District, said, “I am so appreciative of the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department for recently visiting schools in the district and providing recommendations, guidance, and next steps to ensure that the district is better prepared for any emergency that may arise.”

South Lake Tahoe Police Chief Brian Uhler indicated he “recently met with Dr. James Tarwater, Lake Tahoe Unified School District superintendent, and a contracted security consultant with the Lake Tahoe Unified School District. Security surveys for all the campuses in the district are scheduled to occur in the next two weeks in an effort to make improvements in security.”

“Our school districts and county emergency service agencies recognize the importance of keeping our schools safe,” Barber added, “and we are committed to putting forth our best efforts to achieve that goal. We have been very fortunate to have such strong support from law enforcement, the district attorney, and other county agencies for our schools in this county. We have a long history of working cooperatively to ensure the safety of students, staff, and the community.”

Placerville Chief of Police George Nielsen agreed, saying, “The Placerville Police Department remains committed to our partnerships with schools, all other public safety agencies and our variety of local service agencies in keeping our schools and community safe. We greatly value these important relationships and recognize the duty we all have to our children, families and the communities we serve.”
