“The Boot” First Installed at Cory-Rawson

. October 2, 2017.

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office, after over a year of fundraising, is installing “The Boot”, a metal plate placed at the bottom of a classroom door to prevent the door from being opened, protecting students from a shooter. First installed at Cory-Rawson School, there is still a need to raise $152,000, of the $425,000 total for the project, in order to install “The Boot” on all classroom and administrative office doors in every Hancock County public, private and parochial school. To date, money has been raised from donors, including Marathon, Ohio Logistics, Centennial Screen Printing and Embroidery, and the Community Foundation.
