You can meet and talk with Darien’s two school resource officers, the police assigned to Darien High School and Middlesex Middle School, at a brown bag lunch on Oct. 24 at the Depot Darien Youth Center.
You just need to register online — and bring your lunch.
“Please join us for a brown bag lunch for an informal discussion with MMS Student Resource Officer [Stuart “Stu”] Schwengerer and DHS Student Resource Officer Bryan Wallman,” the Depot recently announced.
The lunch starts at 11:30 a.m., Thursday, Oct. 24 at the Depot, 25 Heights Road.
The event runs to 1 p.m., according to multiple announcements from the Depot, although the registration Web page on Eventbrite says 1:30 (the announcement page on Eventbrite has both times).
Wallman has been the SRO at Darien High School since the 2016-2017 school year.
Schwengerer was appointed this summer as the first school resource officer at Middlesex Middle School. An 18-year veteran of the police force, he was previously one of two school liaison officers at the school.
Every school in Darien, along with some nursery school programs, has a Police Department liaison officer (SLO) who visits the school regularly. By contrast, each of the town’s two school resource officers (SROs) are typically in his school all day.
School district officials agreed to creation of the SRO position in Middlesex Middle School after extensive discussions with Police Department officials, who proposed it.
