Welcome Officer Loren Welch!

Dear Benton-Carroll-Salem Community:

We are proud and excited to welcome a new leader within our school district. His name is Officer Loren Welch, and today he begins his duties as the School Resource Officer (SRO) for Benton-Carroll-Salem School District. Officer Welch is a new addition to the Village of Oak Harbor Police Department and is employed by the Village. He will be assigned to work at the school district full-time during the school year. Officer Welch has previously worked as an officer with the Marblehead Police Department. Officer Welch had been motivated to become an SRO and saw this as his opportunity. Mr. Welch and his family reside in Oak Harbor.

Officer Welch will have a presence in all of our buildings where he will work to build relationships with students, staff, and community. Officer Welch will be focused on the goal of keeping all who use our facilities safe. We want everyone to understand that Officer Welch is not here at B-C-S to do student discipline or to have student behavior issues become police matters. Student behavior matters will continue to be issues that will be handled by our building administrators. Officer Welch will be working toward these goals:

1. To ensure a safe learning environment for all children and adults who enter the building.

2. To prevent, or at a minimum reduce potential harm related to incidents of school violence.

3. To foster a positive school climate based on respect for all children and adults in the school.

4. To create partnerships with behavioral health and other care providers in the community for student and family referral.

Further, I want you to know that B-C-S School District and the Village of Oak Harbor are entering into an agreement to split the cost of Officer Welch's salary and benefits. The Village will be invoicing B-C-S for 65% of the cost of Officer Welch's salary and benefits since he will be assigned to B-C-S for 65% of the year. We are also exploring grant opportunities to help offset these costs. I wish to thank Chief Weirich and the Oak Harbor Village Council for their leadership and support in bringing the SRO to our school district.

Having an SRO is part of Benton-Carroll-Salem's comprehensive approach to school safety. Officer Welch will help us address school violence with both prevention and intervention techniques. Having an SRO on a school campus can deter problem situations from arising and can enhance a school’s capacity to address its safety and security concerns. When problems do arise, SROs can intervene quickly to address the situation. SROs can contribute to safe school planning efforts and offer their schools a resource to turn to when emergencies occur. Ultimately, the presence of an SRO assists in making the school safer and more secure for students, teachers, and staff. The entire community benefits as well because learning is more likely to take place in such an environment.

I am sure that as I am writing that Officer Welch is making the rounds in our buildings to introduce himself to students and staff. I am excited to have him as part of our team! In the near future, look for information about a parent and community meeting that we will host, which will give you the opportunity to meet Officer Welch and learn more about school safety efforts at B-C-S. Should you have any questions concerning the SRO or school safety in general, please do not hesitate to contact me.
