Virginia dads want to patrol schools to make them safer for students: ‘Dads on Duty

Sharing is Caring!

Two Virginia brothers have started an initiative to place fathers in local high schools to support faculty and staff, as well as deter violence among students.

Jimmy and Josh Carter of Chesterfield County, Virginia, who have seven children between them, said they were inspired by the “Dads on Duty” initiative in Louisiana, where a group of fathers took matters into their own hands last fall after repeated violence broke out at Southwood High School in Shreveport, leading to the arrest of 23 students over just a three-day period.

When a teenager was arrested in March after allegedly dragging a female classmate into the bathroom at Thomas Dale High School in Chesterfield and raping her in February, the Carter brothers cemented their resolve to get involved.
