Justin Taylor, who has served with the Derby Police Department for the last four years, will join Amanda Boatright as a school resource officer at the high school when classes resume Aug. 13.
Taylor is a former three-sport athlete at Derby High School, who later went on to receive a degree in criminal justice at Wichita State University. In his off-duty time, he will coach track and field at the school, according to the release.
The district has four school resource officers – Taylor and Boatright at Derby High School, and one officer each at Derby Middle School and Derby North Middle School.
