Press Release

The Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Office plans to add two uniformed school resource officers in Bartholomew County Schools this year.

Deputies already perform hundreds of school security checks each year. BCSO has had deputies float between schools as needed. Now, Sheriff Matthew A. Myers will provide two full-time school resources deputies to Bartholomew County schools.

Deputy Jessica Pendleton, an 11-year BCSO veteran will work with Flatrock-Hawcreek schools and Deputy Teancum Clark will work with Bartholomew Consolidated schools. Deputy Clark has been with the Sheriff’s Office for five years.

“We work closely with BCSC and Flatrock-Hawcreek and our schools have a very good Safety Plan but we still need the community’s help,” said Bartholomew County Sheriff Matthew A. Myers. “We all need to do everything we can to keep our children safe."
