The 7-12 district in question had its own police force, and now the unified K-12 district has that police force.

T-shirts sold by the Twin Rivers Police Officers Association have this message: "U raise 'em, we cage 'em," surrounding a picture of a young child behind bars.The shirts were first sold in 2009. A year later the police chief asked that they be taken off the union's web site. The police union president still had them for sale on his Facebook page as recently as this past summer.
