National Police Week

KENANSVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA- May 13, 2019-  The week of May 12-16, 2019 has been designated as National Police Week.  Duplin County Schools (DCS) is joining the national recognition to honor and to remember our law enforcement officers, specifically our School Resource Officers (SRO), who protect our students and staff on a daily basis.  

“DCS is fortunate to have a SRO assigned to each school.  They are an integral part of our school system. The solid relationship between DCS and the Duplin County Sheriff’s Office is, and has been for many years, critical to student success in all of our schools,” said Superintendent, Dr. Austin Obasohan.  “The SROs knowledge of the law, crime trends, safety threats, and their rapport with students make them a true asset to every campus. On behalf of the Board of Education, we salute you, we support you, and we thank you, our School Resource Officers and our law enforcement family, for your courage, strength, and dedication to serve and protect our DCS family members each and every day.”
