FRANKLIN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Franklin-Simpson schools have a new resource officer and she has quite a resume'. Vickie Kristiansen is a lieutenant in the Franklin Police Department.
She has 19 years' experience as an officer; three years doing child abuse investigations. And she has her masters in Justice Administration from the University of Louisville.
This has equipped her to do more than just deal with violations at the schools. "Being a positive role model," says Lieutenant Kristiansen, "being in their classrooms. In elementary schools, hopefully doing a reading program with them."
Lieutenant Kristiansen will rotate among the three elementary schools, the middle school, and the high school, working to expand the programs the department has to further the relationship between the schools and the community.
