MUKSOGEE, Okla. — Muskogee County Sheriff Andy Simmons made a promise before taking office.

“As part of the campaign we knew that we had to come up with some ideas to keep the community safer," Simmons said. "We thought a school resource officer would be a good place to start.”

That's where Muskogee County Deputy Steve Beauvais comes in.

"I get along great with kids," Beauvais said.

Beauvais is also a graduate of Oktaha High School, one of the three schools he will now patrol.

"A lot of the kids that are in school now, I went to school with their parents," Beauvais said.

However, it's more than a personal connection for Beauvais, he knows duty may call.

Beauvais said, “I hope we’ll never need law enforcement." "But if there is a need for it then, we’ll have somebody there.”
