This is to inform everyone that our agency is well aware of the “Snapchat” and “Email” rumors and threats of on-going violence in additional Florida schools. This is a concern among schools throughout the nation. Our agency takes each and every threat very serious and work hard to locate the source. The most recent threat on “Snapchat” came from a person in South Carolina and a copy-cat poster from Putnam County, both are currently now in custody for their comments.

We have personally meet with school officials and have reassured that there is no credible threat on-going with any of our Union County, FL. Schools. Our agency routinely trains throughout our schools for just such an emergency and our hearts and prayers go out to the many victims affected in the Parkland School Shooting. You will see an increase in law enforcement in and around our schools to show a strong presence.

Reminding all students and parents/staff alike, that if you see or hear something, say something to law enforcement. We should all stay vigilant. The safety of our children and schools remain our number 1 priority. Thank you for your concerns.

Have you noticed the one BLUE tree lit up at night at Lakeside Park on N.W. 3rd Street, Lake Butler. It stands out as a symbol during this time of year that we always remember those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice by laying down their lives for others.

We would like to thank the City of Lake Butler for this annual memorial tradition and reminder that our community does not forget the men and women of Union County and throughout this nation that have laid down their lives. This year a special thanks to Mr. David Stegall of Lake Butler Community Page and Lake Butler Commissioner Jack Schenck for renewing and adding to the blue lights that adorn this tree. This memorial tree lighting started in 2002 after the law enforcement line of duty death of Deputy Renee Azure and it's in memory of all the Law Enforcement Deputies and Corrections Officers that have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Once again this has been a very deadly year across our state and nation for line of duty deaths and we will never forgot their service!

Today our agency had to honor to present a program to the young children at Tigers Den Daycare beside Lake Butler Elementary School. We informed them of the importance of "911" and when to use it. We taught them that Law Enforcement Officers are your friends and showed them our emergency equipment and patrol vehicles. We answered many questions (although many questions had to do with dinosaurs) and they were all eager to talk to us. We had a great time teaching our next generation.

On Tuesday, November 14, 2017, K-9 Units searched the Union County High School, Lake Butler Middle School and Union County Alternative (Outpost) School. The search began at 9:10AM. The entire search lasted approximately one hour. The High School and Middle School both went on "lock-down" status for everyone's safety during the search so children and staff remained clear of the hallways. The search was conducted with very limited knowledge of the operation so students/staff was not made aware of the K-9 search until law enforcement officers arrived and entered the school this morning.

Assisting with Union County Sheriff's Office deputies were four K-9 officers and three narcotic dogs from Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. We used two search teams to complete the process faster.

The search was to locate any illegal narcotics or presciption pills or any drug paraphernalia located in any of the schools. This is a law enforcement effort in our continued fight against illegal narcotics. The K-9 dogs have been extensively training on locating illegal substances and are used in schools throughout North Florida. All students were removed from their classes during the search of their belongings, lockers and common areas, as well as student parking lots and exterior searches of their vehicles. NO ILLEGAL DRUGS WERE FOUND IN OR AROUND THE SCHOOLS AND PARKING LOT AREA.

Sheriff Brad Whitehead stated, "This is just another tool and effort to keep our children safe and away from illegal drugs or other harmful activities. This routine search, in partnership with, our schools shows a strong stance against illegal drugs in our community."

Superintendent Carlton Faulk said, "Thanks to the Union County Sheriff's Office and Jacksonville Sheriff's Office for the support of the Union County schools. We request searches throughout the year to make sure we do our best to keep our children and schools DRUG FREE."

We are pleased with the outcome of our narcotics sweep. We continue to monitor our schools daily for any illegal activities.

If you have any questions or concerns or know of any illegal activities to report, you are encouraged to contact the Union County Sheriff's Office at 386-496-2501.
