Officer Greg Medlen of the Door County Sheriff's Department has become Southern Door
School’s new Resource Officer. He works at the school full time with his office located on the
Elementary/ Middle School Side. Medlen’s goal is to educate, counsel, and keep the school safe
by patrol. Southern Door’s 2019 vision for this new school year is to keep Southern Door School a safe and substance-free learning environment. When addressing the student body on the first day of school, Officer Medlen told the students that he wants to make connections with all of the students and keep their school positive. He also pointed out that while he is there to educate, he
wants to learn from the students as much as they will learn from him. One course that Medlen will be teaching in middle school is a self-value and safety class for students. Officer Medlen, School Resource Officer, closed by saying how he is looking off to start the year strong and finish safely.
Officer Medlen's message to the students of Southern Door schools on the first day of school on Tuesday is below.
