Lancaster, Texas ISD police to teach students how not to die in confrontations with officers

Lancaster ISD police want to save students’ lives and build up trust with officers.

After recent shootings in which unarmed African American teens have been killed across the nation, the Lancaster ISD police department is holding a forum called “Project S.O.S” for students, parents and other community members to help them understand the role of law enforcement and related issues, such as how use of force works with police.

Other topics will include the role of law enforcement, the complaint process and the importance of voting. Forum speakers will include police, judges, attorneys and constables.

“We want to educate our students on what to do and what not to do when encountering law enforcement,” Lancaster ISD police Sgt. Alvin Johnson said in a release. He added, ”We want to shed light on the current events, discuss the impact on our students and community and try to ensure that these things will not happen in our community.”
