School Liaison Officer

Daniel Wright has always worked closely with the Lincolnshire Police Department. We are excited to expand our collaboration with the assignment of Officer Roy Bethel as our School Liaison Officer.

The school liaison officer takes a more involved role in getting to know the school better by proactively interacting with staff and students. This means that students will often see Officer Bethel during the day and they are encouraged to interact with him. Because of his usual visits to DW, community members should not be concerned with the frequent presence of a police vehicle on school grounds.

It is commonplace for officers to stop by and perform some of the following duties, said Kimberly Covelli, Lincolnshire Deputy Chief of Police:

• Conduct lockdown drills.

• Aid District 103 personnel with criminal and traffic concerns.

• Assist in training efforts with school staff and department members.

• Conduct safety presentations.

• Build and maintain mutually beneficial relationships.

District 103 is dedicated to the safety and security of all our schools, students, and staff. We look forward to having Officer Bethel as part of our D103 community!
