However, Patrol plans WILL CONTINUE in perimeter and neighborhood patrols. The foundation noted that it will seek to have similar citywide patrols throughout Nashville schools by mid school year.

Team volunteers undergo foundational training prior to the start of the academic year. Team members are cleared through background checks & are trained in situational awareness and basic intervention techniques...
