By Staff | Mar 23, 2021

On Tuesday, March 9 the Emmetsburg Community School District (ECSD) conducted a joint training session with the Emmetsburg Police Department, Estherville Police Department, Spencer Police Department, Storm Lake Police Department, and the Kossuth County Sheriff’s Department.  ECSD Administration worked with officers and their drug canines to plan and practice a coordinated search of the high school and middle school buildings, including the parking lots. This training opportunity was beneficial to both ECSD and their law enforcement partners with a number one priority of keeping students and staff safe. 

“ECSD wishes to thank each of these departments including Chief Veldboom and the Emmetsburg Police Department for their time and expertise in helping ECSD achieve this priority,” noted Superintendent Darren Hanna in a recent release. “We look forward to working collaboratively on exercises like this in the future to keep our school and community safe.”
