Berea Police Department Officer Kristen Napier is settling in as the new School Resource Officer at Berea Community School District. Soon she’ll be starting to teach the Too Good for Drugs program, an initiative to help middle schoolers make good life choices. Napier said she’s glad to be at BCS as the SRO. “I love it,” said Napier. “This is what I’ve always wanted to do, and now I’m doing it.”
During his second full week as School Resource Officer at Foley Middle School and Farristown Middle School, Officer Todd Johnson of the Berea Police Department was already participating in an inspection at Farristown by the Kentucky superintendent in charge of school resource officers. Johnson, who retired from the Lexington Police Department, took the drill/inspection in stride. “It’s always good to find out if there are ways you can improve,” Johnson said.
