Our local law enforcement can now let schools know when children have had a traumatic experience at home. Using a new website (hancockhandlewithcare.org), local law enforcement officers can let schools know when children have had a traumatic experience at home. Findlay police officers and Hancock County sheriff’s deputies can submit a brief report, which can be viewed by Findlay City Schools and the Hancock County Educational Service Center.
Depending on where a child lives and attends school, an FCS or an ESC employee will alert the appropriate principal about the student’s situation. If a law enforcement officer is called to a home they can simply go on the website and fill in information about the incident rather than having to make phone calls.
The website also includes public information about child abuse, human trafficking and parental drug use.
