Deputy DeJaynes will be assigned to the school district throughout the school year, and will rotate between all three PORTA schools. During non-school time, he will be assigned to traditional patrol duties for the sheriff's office. This position was made possible by the PORTA School District funding the cost of an additional deputy for nine months of the year. The remaining three months will be funded by the sheriff's office, as the deputy will be performing regular patrol duties during that time.
"I am pleased that we were able to work with the PORTA School District to provide this service to them", Sheriff Mark Oller Said. "It would not have been possible without the district's commitment to the funding, and I applaud their great interest in the safety of their students and staff".
