Officers Use Facebook and Text Messages to Reach Students

These days it seems the only way to reach a teenager is through a text message or Facebook; So that's exactly how the Cheboygan County Sheriff's Department plans to do it. Any student in the County is now able to text message their school resource officer. That officer also has a Facebook page. Messages can be in reference to weapons, drugs or alcohol, bullying, peer pressure, or anything else. The Sheriff hopes this will encourage students to be more involved with their school and more comfortable approaching police.
