In Morgan County, Superintendent Joyce Ryerson has met with the school resource officer, the Versailles and Stover Police Departments and the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department about security improvements. In Sunrise Beach, police officers have started daily patrols at the Lake West Christian Academy campus.
