Beaufort Co. deputies start new school patrol program

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

Beaufort County sheriff's deputies have started incorporating visits to elementary schools as part of their regular patrols this week. 

Sheriff PJ Tanner thinks the new program, which will give 16 deputies additional responsibilities as part-time school resource officers, will make young children more comfortable around law enforcement and more likely to come forward with safety concerns.
