Say Something with Miller Place Students

MPHS Participates in Education Awareness Program with Deputy Sheriff Amie Rodecker

Miller Place, N.Y. (December 2019)—Students and staff at Miller Place High School (MPHS) recently participated in an education and awareness prevention program and training with representatives from the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office. Deputy Sheriff Amie Rodecker met with each grade level for four 50-minute presentations to educate students on Sandy Hook Promise’s Say Something initiative. Sheriff Rodecker discussed the signs and signals of a potential threat, and how to facilitate a conversation with a trusted adult.

In 2018, Officer Sheriff Errol Toulon partnered with Sandy Hook Promise to bring the Say Something presentation to all Suffolk County schools. To date, the Sheriff’s Office has trained more than 8,000 students, school faculty and parents in Suffolk County.
