Westlake Honors SRO Scott Fortkamp

The City of Westlake held a send-off recently for the founder of the Westlake Police School Resource Officer (SRO) Program, SRO Scott Fortkamp, who is retiring after 26 years with the department. Fortkamp established Westlake as a regional leader, inspiring other cities to implement SRO programs as well. He has led and expanded the program so all of Westlake city schools are covered by SROs full-time during the school year. Following words from Mayor Dennis M. Clough and Chief Kevin Bielozer, SRO Fortkamp received a police escort to his home but not before making a pass through the parking lot at Westlake High School, where he worked for many years.
