School Marshal Officer Program

School Marshall

Through our partnership with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Castle Rock, Lone Tree and Parker police departments, officers and deputies are adding another layer of security at our elementary and middle schools via multiple daily unannounced visits. The primary responsibility during these marshal officer's shifts is to visit and patrol our schools. While they may assist with a law enforcement issue at our schools, if needed, they will not be called away to answer other calls in the community.

We believe that the extensive requirements, in-depth training and wealth of resources our local law enforcement partners offer will ensure we have the best possible protection for our children.

The Marshal Officer program was one of several actions suggested by DCSD’s new Safety Committee, an advisory group that reviews and suggests improvements to the District’s security protocols, infrastructure and training. The goal is continuous improvement. It is also important to mention that savings created by the District’s energy management efforts, as well as contributions by each law enforcement agency will cover much of the program’s cost.
