Security and Safety

Welcome to the Security & Safety Department.
Chris Bowman

Emergency Number:  Dial 911 or 953-8911


The Stockton Police Department has assigned one full-time School Resource Officer (SRO) to our schools inside city boundaries (Lincoln High/Sture Larsson, Sierra/Pacific, and John R. Williams/Claudia Lan. The presence of the SRO throughout the district brings a continuing sense of safety. Additionally, our district security force is currently comprised of a lead officer and five support officers. Starting in the 2013-14 school year, a safety officer will be permanently assigned to each K-6/8 school. The schools are monitored by night patrols and a Sonitrol alarm system.


Each school has its own safety committee and plan. Each year, a portion of our general fund budget is dedicated to district safety projects. Each school continues with peer mediation and conflict management teams as a student-driven mechanism for students assuming responsibility for student behavior.
