In response to the search for an escaped inmate from West TN Penitentiary, Lauderdale County Schools will be taking extra precautions to insure the safety of staff and students. We ask that you assist the schools by limiting student checkouts and unnecessary visits to campus. As usual, School Resource Officers will be present and alert at their assigned locations. Local law enforcement will accompany buses to the immediate search area and will increase patrols along morning routes in other areas adjacent to the search.
As an added precaution, the school district is seeking additional patrols through campus by law enforcement. We ask that you report any suspicious activity or individuals near schools to the proper authorities. Thanks in advance for your assistance in this matter.
