Sheriff's Office Finalizes School Resource Officer Contracts with School Districts

The Chelan County Sheriff’s Office has finalized contracts with the four schools that utilize school resource officers via its office.

The contracts begin Nov. 1 with the Cashmere and Cascade school districts and Dec. 1 with the Chelan and Manson school districts. Chelan County commissioners signed the contracts on Tuesday, Nov. 2., for Cashmere, Cascade and Chelan. Manson has given a verbal agreement so the county is waiting to approve its signed copy.

Chelan County Sheriff Brian Burnett said that after discussion with the Sheriff’s Association and the school districts, the officers will meet the requirements of the school districts, which include a COVID-19 vaccination or an approved exemption from the individual school district. 

“We needed some time to work through this issue on our end, which included finding a solution that the Sheriff’s Association, the officers and the schools could accept,” Burnett said. “We feel comfortable moving forward.”
