Municipal Alliance Brings Police to Columbia HS
Uniformed officers are a presence at CHS
Columbia High School may have noticed police officers in the school lately. Maplewood police are present at high school thanks to a South Orange and Maplewood Municipal Alliance program. The Alliances fund a part-time school resource officer (SRO) at Columbia High School, whose job is to build positive bridges between the police department and the community.
"We are grateful to the Municipal Alliance programs and to the Maplewood Police Department for their ongoing support of our schools and for fostering proactive and positive connections with our students," said South Orange - Maplewood School District Communications Director Suzanne Turner.
