The Warwick School District is pleased to announce that soon-to-be-retired Detective Sergeant John Schofield will fill the newly created role as Coordinator of School Safety and Security.
Mr. Schofield has been deputized by the Lancaster County Court as a school police officer allowing him the ability to perform all the same duties as a municipal police officer. He will serve as Chief of the Warwick School District Police and work hand-in-hand with the current school resource officer, who is an employee of both the school district and Lititz Borough Police.
Chief Schofield’s duties will include advising the district on all matters of safety and security while overseeing the district’s all-hazards plan. Safety and security continue to be a top priority for the district.
“We are blessed and very grateful to have someone with such expertise and knowledge of this community join the Warwick team,” stated Dr. April Hershey, superintendent of the Warwick School District.
Before serving with the Lititz Borough Police Department Schofield spent eight years as a law enforcement officer in the U.S. Air Force. Schofield has a wealth of knowledge and experience and the Warwick School District is thrilled to welcome him into this new role.
