Handle with Care Program

From the Desk of Jon Akers, Executive Director of Kentucky Center for School Safety

Ben Wilcox and I have been sharing information about the “Handle with Care” partnership between local law enforcement agencies and school district officials all over the state for the past two years. Even with our efforts, we still are hearing that some principals and counselors may not be aware that this program exists.

So Ben and I decided to “try it again” via electronic media.

Thanks to our friends at KASA, Ben and I we able to record a short video explaining what this program is all about. Please send this link to your principals, their counselors and to their SROs.

We need to saturate all school districts in our Commonwealth with this useful information. So please “run with this” and spread the good news about this critical program.

Here’s the link: https://aasaonline.mediasite.com/mediasite/Play/4aed9819151248f99ae24e67f4b57dd61d

The video is less than 5 minutes.

Thanks so much for your help on this.

Take care and keep up the great work in keeping our kids and school staffs safe and healthy,
