Jackson Co. Sheriff’s Office reveals new plans for school threats, emergencies

Wisconsin school districts in Jackson County are preparing themselves for security concerns.

The county’s Sheriff’s Department unveiled new procedures Monday to better prepare for issues being seen across the country.

New plans include:

Creating a dedicated Jackson County School Resource Officer, which the Office hopes will make law enforcement more approachable
Organizing active shooter training for students and staff
Hosting community meetings with each school district

“The reality of it is that every community is different and the exact and detailed way to run each program is going to be different based on the community you’re serving,” said Deputy Kyle Nosbisch

The plans were proposed during a collaborative brainstorming session hosted by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office earlier in March.

The Office invited members of all three Jackson County school districts to the meeting.
