Stoughton

Police officer assigned full time to schools

Continue reading below

Police officer Robert Kuhn began his role as school resource officer on Feb. 6, marking the first police presence in the town’s schools for several years. According to Police Chief Paul Shastany,  last year’s Town Meeting provided money to restore several police officer positions. One is being dedicated to the schools. Kuhn, who has been a local officer since 2005, underwent considerable training before taking on his new duties, in areas such as social media safety, methods for stopping a school shooter, and narcotics investigation. Shastany said Kuhn will be assigned to the high school but will also circulate through all town schools. Shastany plans to add a second resource officer at the schools in September, when several recruits are scheduled to graduate from the State Police Academy.
