All KCSD schools staffed with a school resource officer for first time

January 6, 2022

Sheriff, Superintendent & Police CaptainKershaw County School District Superintendent Shane Robbins and Kershaw County Sheriff Lee Boan announced today that all Kershaw County School District (KCSD) schools are staffed with a school resource officer (SRO) for the first time. 
 
The almost $190,000 in state funding will add two SROs to the Kershaw County Sheriffs Office (KCSO) and also will provide vehicles, equipment and training. This brings KCSD's total SROs to 17 including three officers who work for the Camden Police Department. In addition, KCSD's Safety Coordinator Doug Bowling also serves as a KCSO deputy. 
 
Boan said that the goal of having an SRO in every school had been in place for several years. Both he and Robbins acknowledged the cooperative efforts of Kershaw County, the Cty of Camden and the Kershaw County School District to make this possible.
