Calhoun County schoolkids are settling into their routines once again, as classes resumed on Tuesday, September 6 in most districts.

Law enforcement officers say safety reminders are necessary for motorists, parents and kids as they return to their school schedules - and perhaps are distracted by the excitement of it all.

Even so, Sheriff Matt Saxton, Battle Creek Police Sgt. William Gensch and Chief Jim Blocker say the safety reminders are useful all year long. In a back-to-school visit to WBCK, the three also discussed the "See Something, Say Something" campaign, which encourages folks to speak up if they see something that, potentially, police should respond to.
