Titusville Chief Tony Bollinger hosted a met and greet with school administrators.
As part of their commitment to ensure a strong relationship with local schools, Titusville police held a “Meet and Greet” breakfast for school administrators on Friday, September 24th in the training room at police headquarters, 1100 John Glenn Boulevard.
The police department and local schools both share an important commitment –making schools as safe as possible! And having a strong relationship between command staff and school administrators helps ensure that goal.
“This event helps ensure we are effectively communicating, sharing information, and maintaining positive relationships” said Chief Anthony C. Bollinger, who spearheaded the event five years ago. “We have found face to face meetings to be highly effective at fostering relationships”, Bollinger added.
Some examples of when the police department and schools have to work together directly include: school lock downs, threats of violence, drug abuse awareness and education, safety at nighttime football games, and bullying issues.
Titusville Police plan to continue the event each year shortly after the school year starts.
