This program has ended. The S.H.O.T. program came about after a combination of events. Sgt. Richard Davies was a relatively new School Resource Officer searching for ways to connect (and stay connected) with students.
Violence on school campuses was rising at an alarming rate. School shootings were on the news across the country. In almost every case someone knew what was going to happen and was either afraid to tell or wasn�t concerned enough to say anything. Sgt. Davies began talking to students about being responsible and the S.H.O.T. program evolved into what it is today. S.H.O.T. is a magical, assembly style presentation that is a fast paced, fun, realistic look at understanding yourself, making good choices, being responsible for your decisions, and standing up for what is right.
In the fall of 2003, Project Safe Neighborhoods and Arkansans for a Safer Arkansas joined Sgt. Davies to promote the S.H.O.T. program to school aged children in Jefferson County, but has since spread all over Arkansas.
Initially, the S.H.O.T. program was presented to 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students. The program has now been expanded for all elementary aged children, along with 7th, 8th, and 9th graders, and provides follow-up presentations that review and enforce the goals and objectives of previous presentations.
The Video is a collage of pictures taken this past year at programs around the state. The sound track is "Stop the Violence" by the Chestnut Brothers... who over the years have used their music to reach out to young people all over the country with their positive, uplifting message.
