SAN ANGELO, TX — In wake of the tragedy that took place in Uvalde, both the San Angelo Police Department and the San Angelo Independent School District administration told us the two agencies have been in constant communication with each other since yesterday afternoon to provide an additional layer of security at all of our campuses.
Out in the county, Sheriff Nick Hanna said the Tom Green County Sheriff’s Office has added more patrol emphasis around the rural school districts.
SAPD spokesman Officer Richard Espinoza said a secure learning environment for all of our students throughout the City of San Angelo is their mandate.
The Sheriff, SAPD and San Angelo ISD encourages anyone with information regarding possible threats to our schools and students to contact the police department directly and quickly with their concerns so we can address them accordingly.
If you are outside the city limits, call the non-emergency number at the Sheriff’s Office at (325) 655-8111. If inside the city, call the San Angelo Police non-emergency number at (325) 657-4315.
The Sheriff’s Office and the San Angelo Police Department offered their continued thoughts and prayers for the community of Uvalde and the families affected by the horrendous murder of 19 children and two adults yesterday.
