School Resource Officers and Dare Officer
Our partnership with the Fairfield City Police Department has helped provide the school district with 5 police officers (4 School Resource Officers and 1 Dare Officer) that serve throughout our schools. While our School Resource officers do help with crime prevention and safety, they are also involved in mentoring and developing youth, as well as training our school staff and our student body on school safety.
Rob Corner: Officer Corner is a School Resource Officer assigned to Fairfield High School.
Craig Singleton: Officer Singleton is a School Resource Officer assigned to Fairfield Freshman School.
Todd Adamson: Officer Adamson is a School Resource Officer that is assigned to Crossroads Middle School and Fairfield Academy.
Kevin Mack: Officer Mack is a School Resource Officer that is assigned to Creekside Middle School.
Greg Lamb: Officer Lamb supports our Elementary Schools by teaching DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education).
The Fairfield City School District increased its School Resource Officers by adding full-time officers at Creekside and Crossroads Middle Schools, and the Freshman School effective the 2019-2020 School Year. An article in the Journal News is listed below.
Each of our secondary schools have additional staff whose main purpose is to monitor the building both internally and externally. Each Middle School and the Freshman school have one security staff position, and the High School has three positions. Our security staff are critical in identifying student and visitor concerns and helping resolve possible conflict.
In addition to our security personnel, in 2014, Fairfield City Schools welcomed a trained German Shepherd to assist our district in school safety. "Naddi" is trained to detect pharmaceutical and illegal drugs, as well as gun powder. She is one of only three dogs trained to detect pharmaceutical drugs in the country. While Naddi is primarily walking the halls of the high school, she makes visits to all of the schools throughout the year and as needed.
