What does a school resource officer do? Well, lots of things.

One day in early September, Officer Rick Clausing offered his expertise on police radar to students taking law enforcement classes at Raymore-Peculiar High School. The instruction took place in a grassy area between Shull Early Learning Center and the Administrative Services Center.

The law enforcement classes, offered during several class periods, are taught by Keegan Garner, John Burton, and David Stark. Clausing is with the Peculiar Police Department.
