 You don't want the cops to do their job when you're the one in trouble, that is always how it works.  Being the principal does not, under any circumstance mean you own the building and can do as you please, which includes parking in handicapped spots.  The school's "statement" was better off not being said.  They are ignoring it and will probably sweep it under the rug.

 

Quote

"Our officer was upset because he had promised a second grader he would have lunch with her and he couldn't explain to her why he wouldn't be there," Currington said. "He was more upset about the student."

 

Yep, this totally sounds like a guy deserving of being kicked out. /s

Strange that the local authorities allowed that to happen. In my area the sro authority is independent of the school because they are an actual county of officer. None the less, that principals attitude doesnt surprise me. From my own experience with school leadership at every level of the educational system, there are many that feel like they hold all the power, and make efforts to make it as difficult as possible to challenge them even if you're right. One of the key problems with our system today.

According to the article, the involved resource officer is a sworn in police officer for the local police department. He is still able to respond to the building if police are called, it just seems that the school administration do not actively want him there in the role of a resource officer. Whether or not the administration of the school has the power to remove this role is unknown to me, but it seems as if that's what they're trying to do here. Silly situation though.

From what I read, and this could vary, the SRO is brought in by the police department and loaned to the school.  While I do believe the school can say no to having an SRO (in this day and age, why the fuck would you not want to have one?), I imagine there has to be a lot more talks involved.  One person cannot simply decide it.

Found an article with a lot more detail.  https://www.wpxi.com/news/officer-punished-for-ticketing-school-principal/902153468

 

School resource officer Adam Chinchic wrote her a $100 ticket after warning her about parking there numerous times. "He at least three times, that I've been told, at least three times says 'You can't park there that's part of the handicapped area, please don't park there anymore.' And yet, she just defied him," said Hicks.

Yes as far as I'm aware, unless the sro is a private security guard, all sro are appointed le officers of the local dpt assigned to the school, rather than being appointed by the school system.  Their authority as a leo and sro, in any case I'm aware of, go hand in hand and are ordained entirely from the dpt they are part of in both respects.  Only time iv ever heard of it being different is if it is private service, as stated above. This is why their authority is legally separate and makes the situation of the school removing this sro rather odd from a legal standpoint, in terms of supersedence of power.  The school can express an interest in having another officer assigned, but they cant overstep an sro authority typically.  And as far as I'm aware, the school system leadership, not the school principal would make that formal request to the local le agency.  Point being, the principal really shouldn't have any power in this particular situation. The principals superiors in the school system and local le agency should deal with any issues relative to something like this, but outside of that particular school.  Hopefully this wall of texts makes sense lol.

and the stupid thing about this situation, there were no issues between the school and SRO!  The SRO told the principal not to park in handicapped spots (if you haven't, check the most recent link, which has video.  Assuming that is an actual image of the crime, that doesn't even appear to be a handicapped spot, it looks like a straight up non parking spot) multiple times, she ignored, he gave ticket, and she had a tantrum.  This scenario isn't hard to figure out, and the punishment should be pretty damn easy as well.

Yea, bascially, that ticket wont be revoke for sure. Really comes down to, what does the school do about from their end? probably a slap on the wrist honestly, they will probably do nothing.  Thats what school systems do now, they are so afraid of problems that they just bury them instead of handling them.

That is exactly why the school's "statement" says NOTHING about the incident.  Not even condemning her for it, just ignoring it.  It almost feels like they support her.  Sad.

Why are there people that keep thinking they're above the law, no one is above the law 

 

What do you think that authoritative pink "Community Team" under our profile image means? We are above all!

We had a high school withing the city limits where I worked and we had a fulltime SRO there, SRO's aren't school employees and most don't answer to school employees they are there for the security of the school. as with our SRO most are funded by state and federal monies we got grants that paid or SRO salary and I have to say that the SRO position paid a little better as it fell under state and federal pay scale. SRO aren't hired by the school itself and as the principle may be able to request a new officer I don't believe they have the authority to remove one from campus. with that being said what most people don't understand is that handicap parking spots can only be enforced on public property (which the school is absolutely public county property, what I ran into is the way the laws are written and pertaing to like grocery stores etc which is private property a complaint from the property owner or manager of the property will have to be expressed as I had several citations I had written thrown out for this
