Keeping students safe
Resource officer patrols Statesboro High
Statesboro High School Resource Officer Steve Gravley instructs student Leslee Hodges, 14, how to complete tasks while wearing a pair of goggles that simulate intoxication as part of the Alcohol and Drug Awareness Program in a freshman physical education class.
Each morning, students at Statesboro High School are met with smiles, words of greeting or high fives from Statesboro police Officer Steve Gravely. The officer’s presence doesn’t mean something bad has happened. He is the school’s resource officer, which means his daily duties are conducted on school property instead of out in the city streets.
