Jeffersonville Police Department looking for suspect in sexual assaults



Parents of Greater Clark County Schools students are concerned that JPD did not notify the public of the sexual assaults sooner, Victoria George, parent of a Greater Clark student, said Thursday. George said she and nearly 30 other parents have been communicating and sharing their frustrations with one another, she said.

“Had we been notified, parents could have been more vigilant, especially with our older children,” she said. “Precautions could have been taken, and a second occurrence may not have happened.”

George said she and the other concerned parents intend on talking to city officials and department leaders about not alerting the pubic after the first incident and waiting more than a week after the second occurrence.

“We are very concerned about this and not being notified sooner by officials,” George said, adding that the group of roughly 30 parents looking for answers is growing.

An automated service was used Thursday by Greater Clark to alert the public to the possible threat from the suspect.
