City of Rancho Cordova Rancho Cordova Police Department

Deputies And Officers Adopting Elementary Schools

Rancho Cordova Police Department Chief Reuben Meeks has implemented a new program to reach out to elementary schools in the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department’s East Division and the city of Rancho Cordova. Deputies assigned to the Sheriff’s East Division and officers assigned to the Rancho Cordova Police Department will be adopting 23 elementary schools located within their jurisdiction. The schools involved in the program belong to the Sacramento City Unified School District, the Elk Grove Unified School District, and the Folsom Cordova Unified School District. The deputies and officers volunteering for this program will serve to augment those who are currently assigned to schools as full-time School Resource Officers.

Officers will visit their adopted schools during school lunchtime hours when they are not otherwise handling a dispatched call for service. The goal is to strengthen the relationships between students, staff and law enforcement. Chief Meeks believes law enforcement officers are role models to students and he wants to promote good student behavior before, during and after school while providing a safer academic environment. Officers may also visit their adopted schools during non-lunch times to visit classrooms and talk with staff.

Please direct any questions about this program to the Problem Oriented Policing (POP) Sergeant Wayne Stephens at (916) 875-5710.
