Good morning everyone, Armando Espitia Lieutenant at MVPD. I oversee our youth services unit and SRO'S. Home visits can be proactive to check in on a student or follow up, they can be collaborative in working with school staff, and often parents call us and ask us to speak with their child as they are having difficulties with them, the child is not wanting to go to school, etc.
We have three SRO'S and they are funded by the Police Department/City of Mountain View.
With regard to our efforts on race, equity and inclusion, you can learn more about our changes in policy, use of force, and more here: https://www.mountainview.gov/depts/police/department_at_a_glance.asp
Lieutenant Ramos do you have the Parent Project program for schools in Mt View/Los Altos? thanks
Good morning Linda. We've been asked to do talks on certain topics. we also
We are thankful for the positive relationships that have been established via our SROs. We are having conversations planned to discuss student perspectives and have already shared information regarding the supportive role they play on campus.
Sorry. We also participate in El Cafecito in partnership with MVHS. We did several presentations with MVHS ELL classes over the last two weeks.
We'd be happy to discuss how we can further partner with you/the Parent Project Linda. My email is Armando.firstname.lastname@example.org
More info on our stats, services, units (like cyber crime) can be found in our just released 2019 MVPD annual report: https://www.mountainview.gov/civicax/filebank/blobdload.aspx?BlobID=33177
To Chief Galea, since LAPD’s SRO covers 16 schools across K-12, can you talk about the age- (grade-level) specific training this person receives? Thank you!
Sorry I’m late. We had a staff meeting this morning. Michael JimenezPrincipal
Huong Vo, Student Services Coordinator (she, her, & hers)
Hi everyone, sorry I’m late. This is Huong from MVLA.
How many schools do the 3 MVPD SROs work with? Are they stationed at any particular campus, or like Los Altos PD, respond when requested? It sounds like Los Altos uses an "on call" model of school policing?
Trudy Palmer SELPA 1 CAC, Mental Health Subcommittee & Parent Chat (monthly support group for parents concerned about the emotional stability of their teens)
MVPD Youth Services Unit
To clarify, the new DARE model provides lessons for kids in grades K-12. DARE school is a two week school (80 hours) for police officers. In addition, we attend an SRO School which is also two weeks (80 hours).
will trick or treating be permitted with social distances requirements followed? We live in the Bentley Square Private neighborhood and wanted to have a parade also with balls etc as precaution
SCCBH has many free mental health trainings the police can access as well.
Can the chiefs comment on how they view the role of PD and the DA in assisting with school re-engagement/attendance efforts?

The more recent research shows we need to look at ACE’s to see how this affects our students behavior, academic performance and their mental health. They need supportive programs rather than discipline. Boston Children’s hospital has a great course on Trauma informed practices which can be found at pediatrics.org, click on their TAP courses.
Very informative presentation. When districts remove SROs off campuses how do we ensure police that do come on campus are well trained
in interacting with youth
Hello Everyone! Such critical conversations so needed at this time. Julie Cates, League of Women Voters
These are eye-opening statistics. Your data is youth-focused, as it should be. But in order to impact these stats, don’t we need a more holistic approach that includes including/impacting family and neighborhood? The SROs are one piece of the puzzle.
Excellent points, Aila. Also relevant is that police are funded locally and schools by the State so 'reallocation' is problematic
Darya can you share the national statistics you provided about the resource investments in nurses, social workers etc vs law enforcement? I didn't capture it fast enough :)

Hi all! I wanted to share that the Computer History Museum just released some really cool content about the 2020 election and technology past and present related to voting, campaigning and elections. You can check it out here: https://computerhistory.org/election-2020/ There are two more live virtual events coming up, a high school discussion guide, a timeline of technology relating to politics and elections, and our CHM Teen Alumni will be publishing a blog in October about perspectives from first time voters! Please contact me if you'd like to discuss or connect or partner in any way! email@example.com
Correction: One more virtual event!
All the adolescent medicine doctors at LPCH got lanyards with voting cards on with a QR code that our patients and parents can scan to see if they are registered and how they can sign up. If you want one, you can get it at vot-er.org/kit or @Vot_ER_org
