Lexington PD long serving CAT Team member moved to school resource officer

Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) PFC. Steffonie Cockerill, who has spent the last ten years working with the Community Acton Team (C.A.T.), was recently moved to the position of School Resource Officer. Cockerill will be sharing her time between Lexington, Meadow Glen, and New Providence Elementary Schools.

School resource officers not only keep the schools they are assigned to safe, they also teach the importance of relationships between the community and the police department to the students. They often monitor the wellbeing of the students and watch for any signs of trouble that may indicate the child is having a problem in or outside of the school setting. Sometimes, they assist in providing for the needs of children who may require attention with socialization at school or even problems in their home life. SROs have been known to act as tutors, mentors, and in some schools, they even help teach portions of the curriculum in regard to the function of government and its relationship to the community.

During a recent meeting, Cockerill was presented with an award by Major Matt Davis for her many years of service to the Community Action Team (CAT).
