MMS School Resource Officer
Deputy Sheriff, Andy Gore
The Coweta County School Resource Unit employs officers who are assigned as full-time school resource officers at the middle schools and high schools in the Coweta County School System, and several officers are also assigned to the county's elementary schools teaching a drug awareness program called “Project S.A.F.E.”
At the middle and high school level, deputy sheriffs are in place as a resource for students, parents, and teachers. The officers are on campus to provide a safe and secure environment for the students to attend school but are also available to assist in answering questions about Georgia laws, school policies, and to teach informational classes for students.
The School Resource Unit also has a K9: Corporal Rodney Ison and his K9, Cricket, visit the middle and high schools on a rotating basis in an effort to keep the schools drug and trouble-free. Cricket, a lab/spaniel mix, is trained to sniff for several types of drugs, alcohol, and gunpowder. Corporal Ison and Cricket also visit the elementary schools on special occasions.
Officer Andy Gore has been with Madras since August 2010 and works with staff, parents, students, and the school community to proactively monitor and supervise day-to-day activities and extra-curricular activities and to provide a feeling of safety and security to our students. He also mentors and sponsors the Junior Law Enforcement Academy which meets during the second semester of each school year.
Anonymous tip boxes are located in our media center and are checked by our resource officer daily. If you have questions or would like to report an immediate safety concern, you can contact Officer Gore at 770-254-2744 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
