Officer Joe Saunier said only a stick of dynamite will remove him from his position as school resource officer.
Lt. Chris Atkins said it would take the force of a two-ton truck.
No matter the metaphor, Saunier, who will be honored June 19-21 as the state’s School Resource Officer of the Year, loves his job.
It wasn’t always that way.
About three years ago, when Atkins and Chief Tommy Burris told Saunier he would replace Nathan Doty as the school district’s resource officer, Saunier thought about retirement or resigning.
