A note in yesterday's Island Packet said of Creason:
He has been the officer at H.E. McCracken for three years, working with students, parents, school administrators and neighboring law enforcement agencies to create a safer environment at the school and surrounding community, the release said. He also serves as a mentor to fellow Bluffton police officers and has created a bicycle-registration program that helps track stolen and missing bikes.
Creason was presented the Bamberg award Thursday by the South Carolina Association of School Resource Officers.
"Cpl. Creason is not only a police figure to the students of H.E. McCracken, he is also a mentor," Police Chief David McAllister said. "It takes a special person to be able to do the things Cpl. Creason does on a daily basis."
Thanks to Officer Creason and the other school resources officers serving South Carolina's public schools. Educators, children and their parents are appreciative of your service.
