Response to Richland County Sheriff firing Spring Valley SRO

School officials and police officers both have the tough job of making on-the-spot judgment calls during the course of their daily duties.  I respect the difficulty of these decisions and I regret the fact that a bad decision can lead to bad outcomes for all involved.  However, both educators and police officers must be held to a high standard when interacting with students and the public.  With this in mind, I respect Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott’s decision to fire the SRO.  As a community, we must continue the work that we have done to support each other through all of the recent tragedies in South Carolina and to remain united as we deal with this difficult situation.
