Westmoreland County Public Schools (WMLCPS) has a new School Resource Officer (SRO) at Montross Middle School. Deputy Will England was introduced to the WMLCPS administrative team by the W&L SRO, Senior Deputy Kim Simon. Deputy England will assume his new duties at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school years. He was born and raised in Westmoreland County and is a graduate of Washington & Lee High School.

The Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officer is “designed upon the “Basic Triad Concept” of being a law enforcement officer, teacher, and counselor to the school community. That community consists of the school administration, faculty, staff, parents, students, and the schools’ surrounding community.”

According to the WMLSO website, “the central mission of the law enforcement-educator partnership is student success. When students succeed, the entire community succeeds. Student success contributes to community safety; students who experience success and make positive contributions within their schools become productive citizens in the larger community.”
