Lance Turner led the meeting and welcomed members from the Mediation Center of N.C., the Department of Juvenile Justice and Duplin County Schools.
Officer Chris Ward opened with prayer and the group enjoyed breakfast before the meeting began. Various updates, services and programs were shared as members from different organizations spoke.
Ronald Moore, Director of Maintenance thanked the group for their work in keeping the schools safe as well as jumping in to help in various ways in their schools during the summer. He also thanked them for taking the time to build the needed relationships with students and their families.
Dr. Ben Thigpen, Assistant Superintendent of Federal Programs, Student Support and Athletics, shared information regarding the newly adopted State Reporting System, “See Something, Say Something”.

The Duplin County Schools Resource Officers are truly dedicated to protecting the DCS family each and every day. Dr. Obasohan stated, “They are an integral part of the school system and their work is vital to the success of all students.”
