Scottville commission creates MCC school resource officer position.

SCOTTVILLE — City commission on Monday, June 17, voted to create a Scottville Police Department school resource officer position that will serve Mason County Central Schools. The position will not be official until the Mason County Central Board of Education approves its 2019-2020 budget. 

The SRO will be a full time Scottville Police Department officer, with 75% of funding coming from Mason County Central Schools. 

“When we’re looking at enhancing school safety, it’s a big plus partnering with the City of Scottville,” MCC Superintendent Jeff Mount said. “Doing so has benefits for both of us. This is all about the safety of our children. This is a win-win partnership for both of us and I’m really excited about that on both ends.”

Mount said the school resource officer will serve several functions at the school with the goal of creating a positive role model for the students. “A big part of the school resource officer position is educating children on the law and creating a positive relationship with them. It’s a good thing for our kids to see a uniformed officer who is there to keep them safe and to teach them the differences between the right way and the wrong way of doing things. The SRO will be a part of our school family.”
