Clark County School District is looking into a video making the rounds on social media. The video shows CCSD police officers arresting three high school students.
The video shown to KTNV shows two handcuffed students being led to a police car while a third student is forced to the ground by an officer who then presses his knee into their back.
Police in the CCSD said the incident “started with an investigation into a report of a gun” near a school campus. The following is a statement from Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara:
Upon viewing the video involving school police and juveniles near a CCSD campus, we are concerned with how one of our students was treated. As with any situation, an investigation will occur to understand all the facts and hold people accountable for their actions.
The relationship between our students and school police is extremely important to each school community. The partnership between our students and school police is paramount to school safety and cultivating future relationships.
