In the wake of the most recent tragedy which occurred yesterday at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, as well as the series of other tragedies and loss our nation has experienced over recent years, the Flatonia Police Department is aware of and understands the very real concerns that exist for the safety of our schools and for our community. As we all mourn the loss and suffering experienced in Uvalde, and too many other communities, please know that the safety of our schools and our citizens is at the forefront of our minds. Immediate steps have been taken to increase safety and security, and long-term plans are underway to address these issues not only in the immediate future, but in lasting ways. We will continue to work in partnership with the Flatonia Independent School District to ensure the safety of our schools, and with community leaders and citizens to address safety concerns and needs within the City of Flatonia. As our thoughts and prayers are with those who have suffered unimaginable loss, we are working as an agency and with our partners to address these needs here in Flatonia.
Chief Lee Dick, Flatonia Police Department
