My name is Darrell Klink and I am your Genoa School Resource Officer. A little about myself, I am a certified, full time, sworn Deputy, employed by the Miller County Sheriff’s Office where I have been serving since January of 2016. Prior to my time with the Sheriff’s Office, I spent eight years on Active Duty in the United States Marine Corps where I had the honor of deploying overseas on two different occasions. During my time in the United States Marine Corps, I had the privilege of serving as a Motor Vehicle Operator (MOS 3531) and a Sergeant of Marines. I also served in a variety of billets; Machinegun Instructor, Marksmanship Coach, and Licensing Non-Commissioned Officer. I received an Honorable Discharge as a Sergeant (E-5) in December of 2015 along with numerous awards and commendations. Before I had the honor of becoming a United States Marine, I served two years as a Firefighter/Engineer with the Redings Mill Fire Protection District outside of Joplin, Missouri, while attending Missouri Southern State University.
Now you may be asking yourself, “Why is he telling us all of this?” I want you, the citizens of the Genoa Central School District, to understand who YOU have serving as your School Resource Officer. My number one priority is the safety and wellbeing of all students and staff of the Genoa Central School District. My number one goal is to ensure that everyone goes home at the end of the day.
In conclusion, I want YOU, the parents and children of Genoa Central Schools, to understand that I have a 100 percent open door policy. You are welcome to come to me with anything at any time during the school day, and we will work together to solve whatever it is. My office is located in the Genoa Central High School. Please feel free to come and visit any time during the school day. The one thing I ask of you is that you check in with the front desk staff, and they will contact me to come meet with you, as I am normally out and about at any of our three campuses.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve you as your School Resource Officer.
