Law Enforcement and Legislators in Genesee County agree that they want a police officer in every school in the county.
Local Lawmen and state government representatives met recently to address the growing concern of school safety against the backdrop of the tragic school shooting in Florida.
The general consensus from the meeting was that there should be a resource officer in every school.
Currently LeRoy Schools are covered by LeRoy Police, the Genesee county Sheriff’s Office provides a deputy for Byron-Bergen and Genesee Valley BOCES and Batavia PD provides resource officers at city schools.
Sheriff William Sheron says it is his goal to a have a resource officer in every school building.
The big question remains how to pay for the amount of resource officers needed to meet the goal.
State Police in Batavia are alerting the public of a new Bank text message scam.
State Police say if you receive a text from your personal banking cooperation it could be a scam!
The message alert will appear like it was sent from the bank and will have a way for you to “contently” contact them back.
Police say DO NOT give your personal banking account or credit/debit card information or over the phone or by email.
If you have questions or concerns about your banking accounts, contact your bank directly or in person.
