LPD to Staff Full-Time Resource Officer at Schools

The Lakeport Police Department will be staffing a full time School Resource Police Officer on the campuses of the Lakeport Unified School District starting the first week of October. This program has been made possible by a funding partnership between the LUSD School Board and the City Council of the City of Lakeport. All involved officials believe that placement of a police officer on the school grounds will greatly enhance the safety of all students, staff and visitors on the campuses, in addition to having a positive impact on the students.
