    School welfare checks made of all campuses at random intervals. Foot patrol and staff contacts.
    This week there were some six incidents of “welfare checks” for individuals in distress. We don’t like to report each one as some are very private matters and some are about mental health issues. But the public needs to know that our police officers don’t just ride around in their patrol cars all day drinking coffee and eating doughnuts.
    When you trip your burglar alarm accidentally, it takes three officers out of commission to respond to the call. For Pete’s sake, be careful!
