Hammack named resource officer at Southwest schoolsJuly 6, 2018
From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — The Huntingburg Board of Public Works and Safety named Huntingburg Police Officer Andy Hammack as the school resource officer for the Southwest Dubois County School Corporation on Thursday.
Hammack, who has been with the department since 2012, will go through training for the position the week of July 16. Although he will be stationed at Southridge High School, Hammack will be present in all of the district’s schools during the school year.
The district will be the second in the county to hire an officer full-time.
Jasper Police Department Officer Jason Knies has served Greater Jasper Consolidated Schools in some capacity since the 2014-15 school year.
The Dubois County Council has asked the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department to add a resource officer to its 2019 budget to serve the Northeast Dubois County School Corporation; however, if approved, that officer wouldn’t start until January 2019.
Also, the Ferdinand Police Department is planning to send one of its officers to school resource officer training this summer, so that the department is prepared should the Southeast Dubois County School Corporation request a school resource officer in the future.
