Reader Discretion is Advised. **Explicit Content Ahead**

The research is disturbing. Schools try to provide a safe learning environment, but they’re underfunded, understaffed, and need more training. 

Should you become aware of a person who you believe may be a danger to someone at a school, NEVER attempt to handle the situation yourself. See or hear something – say something by REPORTING your suspicions to school administration or law enforcement.

Robin Lyons, author websiteIf you’re curious about how law enforcement functions, then you should sign up for a citizen’s academy. And if you’re an author who writes scenes containing any police procedures, you also should sign up for a citizen’s academy.

BLOG POST #215: This week, I’m sharing research information on a Citizen’s Academy I attended.

As I said in post 209, most law enforcement agencies have a Citizen’s Academy. Call your local police or sheriff department and ask them.

In that case, her nine-month sentenced was suspended. The court required her to pay fines and court costs. Based on court documents, her conviction two years previous to her application was known by the school board president when she was hired. Read More

Robin Lyons Fiction AuthorBLOG POST #212: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving two high school football players.

The Bet

Two football teammates made a harmless small bet on a basketball game. The boys were also friends. The one who’d lost the bet promised to pay his friend as soon as he had money.
