Early Release in Action: Campus Supervisor Training
Once a month, during early release Wednesday, campus supervisors from the District's middle and high schools gather for specialized trainings and collaboration. Hosted by the Public Safety Office, the trainings include topics like child abuse identification and reporting, search and seizure and this month, narcotics and gangs.
The Westside Interagency Narcotics (WIN) Team from Washington County presented on narcotics use and identification. Special guest presenter, Taz, the K9 drug sniffing dog, demonstrated his skills by locating nine ounces of heroine hidden in a heating vent in the Administration Office conference room. Don't worry, the Sheriff's Office hid it there.
Following the presentation on narcotics, the Interagency Gang Enforcement Team (I-GET) explained their work in identifying and working with known gang members in the area. The team is responsible for assisting in investigations of violence, intel gathering and suppression.
