School resource officer tweets to prove point about internet safety to students

-A A +A

By Lori Prevatt, Citizen Correspondent

A school resource officer from Richland County, South Carolina, made a bold move to prove the dangers of the internet to her students in that state. Now, Kelly Pounds is using the knowledge she gained from the experience to teach other students about internet dangers.

Pounds went to Chiefland Elementary April 2 to teach her social media class to the entire fifth grade student body.

She began by sharing a little information about herself. Pounds has been a school resource officer in South Carolina for two years. She grew up in Chiefland and graduated from Chiefland High School. After graduation, she went to school for medical billing and services. But later, she discovered her passion for law enforcement.

“There are 96 school resource officers in Richland County and we still do not have a resource officer in every school,” Pounds said.

The officer began her presentation by asking students to raise their hands if they had a cell phone, and to raise their hands if they posted pictures on social media. The majority of the student body raised their hands for both statements.
