Full-time deputy to be stationed at Chalmette High

Chalmette, La. - School officials and the St. Bernard Sheriff's Office will place a full-time Resource Officer inside Chalmette High School on a permanent basis and expand the presence of "drug dogs" in the middle and high schools.

St. Bernard Parish Sheriff Pohlmann also announced the return of recently retired Sheriff's Maj. Darlene Poche, the former commander of the Juvenile Division, into service as a liaison between the Sheriff's Office and the school district. 

The two agencies also agreed to step up residency checks to ensure that only St. Bernard residents are attending public schools.

The sheriff emphasized the plan builds on initiatives already in place through an ongoing cooperative agreement between law enforcement and the schools.

Superintendent Voitier pointed out that resource officers have been in place at Rowley Alternative School for some time. She also said that "drug dogs" returned to duty in parish middle schools last spring for the first time since Hurricane Katrina and will be used again.
