School Liaison Officers investigate crimes committed by juveniles that occur in city schools. In order to focus on rehabilitation over punitive measure, the section works very closely with Juvenile Court, Child Protective Service, Substance Abuse Council, the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation and various community agencies to provide opportunities for restitution, counseling and restorative justice programs. School Liaison Officers also present the Officer Friendly programs in their assigned elementary schools. Their staffing consists of one sergeant and five officers.

At what age will my child no longer need a booster seat in my vehicle?
There is no set age. A child who weighs over 40 pounds and under 80 pounds and measures under 4’9” tall, must use a lap belt along with a booster seat. The statute requires that both criteria must be met in order to avoid a possible citation.
