Increased police presence as new school year begins

(Danville, Va.) — In support of the Danville Public School system’s start of the new school year, police officers will be among those welcoming area students back today.

Some officers will be riding school buses with students. Others will be at the schools engaging with students and faculty. This effort is part of the Danville Police Department’s continued interest in better serving our community and ensuring students have a smooth start to their school year.
