Kent County Sheriff Deputy Tom McCutcheon will be on the job 40 hours a week at Cedar Springs Public Schools this fall as the new school resource officer.

Deputy McCutcheon comes to us after serving on the Kent County Sherriff Department since 1993.  We appreciate his decades of courageous service to all of us in Kent County and especially appreciate his passion for serving kids with his immense involvement in schools and communities.  Deputy McCutcheon has been recognized for earning both the Deputy of Year and School Officer of the Year awards, is a field training officer, has been a Community Policing Officer and DARE Officer (in Cedar Springs!).

Additionally, he is President of the West Michigan Crime Prevention Association, is a Board member of the Crime Prevention Association of Michigan, the Michigan Community Child Watch and Camp Blodgett. He is a DNR instructor and Field Training Officer.  He has served in Comstock Park Schools as a football coach and girls varsity softball coach. He started a local Boy Scout troop and established the KOPS program in Kentwood schools (Kids & Officers Productive Society – centered around helping disadvantaged youth build self-esteem to become productive students).

We look forward to our partnership with the Kent County Sherriff Department and a focus on school safety and security throughout our district. We know through our surveys of staff and parents that they view safety and security as a priority for our Cedar Springs Public Schools and we do too!  This initiative is just one way we are responding to that feedback.  We now join many districts in Kent County in the SRO program and know it will serve us well.

Again, we welcome our very own Cedar Springs Public Schools SRO Deputy Tom McCutcheon.
