Taylorsville - Taylorsville Precinct Chief Wyant has made the decision to introduce the Too Good Program into nine elementary schools in Taylorsville as a pilot program.
Detective Scott Lloyd is heading up this program throughout the elementary schools in Taylorsville. Detective Lloyd has been assigned to work in Taylorsville City for the last 18 years in many roles within the police department, primarily focusing on community problem solving in neighborhoods and schools.
The program curriculum includes practicing and setting reachable goals, making responsible decisions, resisting peer pressure, effective tools to deal with bullying and violence prevention, and saying no to drugs and alcohol. Another aspect of the Too Good Program is comprehensive drug and violence prevention education designed to mitigate risk factors and build protection against problem behaviors.
The Too Good Program also allows kids one-on-one time with a familiar officer that is in their school on a regular basis. This interaction creates a bond of trust allowing the kids to communicate concerns, ask questions, and solve problems. Detective Lloyd also participates in many other events throughout schools, such as bike and scooter safety, assemblies, and safety drills.
If you would like to learn more about this program, please contact Detective Lloyd at (385) 468-9435.
