On Thursday, March 8, 2018, during 2nd period class time, Riverside Brookfield High School and the Riverside Police Department conducted a “Canine Search.”
The search was a collaborative effort between the District 208 administration and the Riverside Police Department in an effort to create a safe and drug-free environment within the school. Several area police departments participated in this search, which was monitored by staff serving as impartial observers. The dogs, which were specifically trained for this type of search, were kept away from direct contact with students and staff at all times. These types of random searches will continue to be a part of the annual procedures at Riverside Brookfield High School in order to create a safe and drug-free learning environment.
