PRESCOTT--A new face has shown up at the Prescott schools lately.
Officer Steve Robinson of the Prescott Police Department spends two days a week in the schools as part of the Juvenile Crime Reduction Project. This is an initiative funded by the City of Prescott utilizing one of their full-time officers.
The initiative has three main goals: 1. To reduce the incidence of juvenile crime in the City of Prescott; 2. To improve police-youth community relations; and 3. To improve school safety and security.
Whether eating lunch with high school students or helping monitor traffic at Malone Elementary School, Robinson is excited about his new responsibility as part of the project.
“I enjoy working with the students and getting to know them individually,” he said. “This position provides an opportunity to be a good mentor to students, offer some safety education and provide a better sense of security for all the kids.”
