SCHOOL RESOURCE DIVISION:
The School Resource Division of the Clermont Police Department was created in response to new legislation enacted in the State of Florida in 2018 which addressed the growing need for increased safety and emergency preparedness in Florida schools. The members of this division are assigned to local schools and are involved in educating the faculty and students in regards to emergency response procedures while providing for the daily safety and security needs on campus.
