School Resource Officer
Officer Michael Carpenter (pictured right) of the Bow Police Department has been appointed as the next School Resource Officer for the Bow and Dunbarton School Districts. Officer Carpenter was the top choice of a panel consisting of Bow School District personnel and a Dunbarton police officer.
Bow Police Chief Margaret Lougee served as the School Resource Officer for the past ten years. “Officer Carpenter will be a great asset for the Department and the School Districts,” said Chief Lougee. “This task is a huge responsibility and I feel Officer Carpenter will do a great job at continuing to keep open lines of communication with the District, teaching safety classes, and counseling students. He will be a great resource for the students, staff, and the communities of Bow and Dunbarton,” added Chief Lougee.
Officer Carpenter has previous experience instructing classes at Bow High School, working with the Bow Police Explorer Post, and at one time served as Juvenile Officer for the Tobey School. He will begin training and observation with Chief Lougee beginning January 3, 2017.
