One of Sheriff McDonald's Strategic Plan Objectives is to increase Deputy presence in the schools. During the 2015-2016 school year, Deputies completed a total of 5,125 school checks.  A 'school check' occurs when a Deputy goes into a school and interacts with students, teachers, or administrators.  These numbers are in addition to extra security patrols of the school's campus and their regularly assigned School Resource Deputies.
