Ohio County Sheriff’s Deputy Sgt. Chuck Kittle is going beyond the call of duty at Wheeling Park High School.
Kittle serves as a Prevention Resource Officer at Park, but he also visits Civics classes to discuss the U.S. Bill of Rights. He presents a lesson on police procedures as they pertain to the rights afforded to U.S. citizens.
Kittle primarily discusses the Fourth Amendment, which protects against unreasonable search and seizure. Kittle also explains probable cause and reasonable suspicion. Once these thresholds are met, he explains what actions police office may take. The students enjoy the discussions, and they find it interesting and educational.
