Thirty-eight of the 46 incidents that happened at Lamar Consolidated ISD schools in the month of April were committed in the city of Rosenberg.
Rosenberg Police Chief Jonathan White gave his monthly police report at Tuesday’s Rosenberg City Council workshop meeting, where he noted that the school resource division reported 46 violations.
In April, council member Lisa Wallingford asked White to make a comparison of how many of the school incidents are happening outside and inside city schools.
“(The school resource officers) are covering a large portion of the county, not just our city limits,” Wallingford commented at last month’s meeting. “So (not) all of these statistics that count toward crime statistics in the city of Rosenberg are being committed (inside the) city limits. Could you let us know how many of these are committed in schools in our city?”
Of the 46 incidents that occurred in the last month, all but eight occurred in Rosenberg schools, White said.
Incident types include assault, injury to child, possession of alcohol, possession of drug paraphernalia, sexual assault, suicidal subjects, thefts, threats and tobacco.
White noted that the majority of violations were tobacco-related.
Secondary schools located in Rosenberg are Lamar Consolidated and Terry high schools, Lamar and George junior high schools, and Wessendorff, Navarro and Wertheimer middle schools.
The school resource officers are assigned to the secondary schools, but respond to 45 properties within the school district. Lt. Daryl Segura said there are 18 school resource officers: one lieutenant, two sergeants and 15 officers.
School resource officers are Segura, Jeff Johnson, Stephen Clarke, Kelly Kreusch, Jerry Price, Antonio Agular, Michael Walden, David Leal, Randy Weishiemer, James Edge, Sherman Phillips, Christian Nichols, Brandon Armstrong, Nicole Emidy, Bethany Gilleland, Sean Deroch, Katrina Bubb and William Mehling.
There are over 32,000 students who attend the 45 schools that make up LCISD. The school district contracts with the city of Rosenberg to provide security at its campuses. This agreement with LCISD will be reconsidered in July
