K9 Eddie

Officer Garlock was the district’s first School Resource Officer, starting in 2015. He became Director of Safety and Security in 2018 but remains the School Resource Officer at South.

After high school, he spent four years in the U.S. Navy. He graduated from the Rhodes State Police Academy and went to work at the Delphos Police Department. In 2010, Officer Garlock joined the Lima Police Department as a patrolman and member of the SWAT Team. He remained there until coming to the school district. He received the Lima Allen County Safe Community School Safety Award in 2017.

K9 Eddie is the newest member of our K9 team. The 1-year-old German Short-Haired Pointer will soon be headed to the Von der haus Gill Police K-9 Academy, where he will be trained in explosive detection and tracking.
