Sheriff candidates stress school safety

Candidates for Chesterfield County sheriff agree local schools are safe, but say more can still be done.
Incumbent Sheriff Jay Brooks and challenger James Dixon recently discussed school safety in separate interviews with the Progressive Journal.
They are running in the Democratic primary on June 20. No one else has filed to run for sheriff.
They agree having a law enforcement presence in our schools in critical. Currently there are school resource officers in the high schools and middle schools.
