Police Chief Pleased With Response To School Lockdown

Yuma Police Chief John Lekan is very happy with his department’s response to the recent lockdown at area schools. 

Rancho Viejo Elementary and neighboring Salida Del Sol schools were placed in a forced lockdown Tuesday morning after a student reported to a teacher she thought she saw another student with a weapon.  After an extensive search and sweep of the school campuses, no weapon was found. 

Chief Lekan says social media was one of the many outlets that alerted parents as to the situation.

Chief Lekan made the comments during the Live and Local Show with Russ Clark on Wednesday.
