West Geauga SRO Builds Relationship with Students
Officer Mark Rich and studentsOfficer Mark Rich is a police officer with the Chester Township Police Department. He is also the School Resource Officer for the West Geauga Local School District.

“Students come see me or at least stop in once a day to say hello. I really enjoy working at the school and getting to know the students. I have gotten to know most of them by interacting with them in lunchroom or greeting them in the hallways” said Officer Rich. Working in the schools has allowed Rich to guide students in a way that he couldn’t do in the past. He said, “I have had several students come talk to me about school issues, home issues and personal issues. I have been told by the students that they enjoy me being here because they can trust me when they come talk to me.”

Officer Rich has also had positive feedback from the parents. He said, “I've had a number of parents stop up to talk to me, saying how much their kids enjoy having me at the school and how their kids feel safer.”
