On October 26th, 2022 the Chino Valley High School, in cooperation with local law enforcement, conducted a pre-planned drug sweep of the campus and parking lot.
Over the past few months, Chino Valley Police Department and Chino Valley School District employees have received information, from various sources, regarding the potential influx of illegal and illicit drugs, to include Fentanyl, on our school campus. This information was alarming and was taken very serious by administration and law enforcement. To prevent the possession, use, and/or sale of these illicit drugs on campus, CVHS worked with local law enforcement partners to assist in the drug sweep.
Today, members from local law enforcement agencies conducted K9 searches of classrooms and vehicles. Law enforcement used a total of ten (11) drug sniffing K9’s to assist in this sweep.
The following agencies participated in this operation:• Chino Valley PD• Cottonwood PD• Arizona DPS – GIITEM• Partners Against Narcotics Trafficking Taskforce• Prescott PD• Prescott Valley PD• Yavapai County Juvenile Probation• Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office.
As a result of the sweep, no illegal or illicit drugs were found. There were also no other illegal items located.
There were no arrests made. CVHS and Chino Valley PD want the community to know that we take any and all drug use, possession, or sale on a school campus seriously. We are committed to providing a safe learning environment for both the students and staff. Any questions should be directed to the Chino Valley Unified School District or Chino Valley Police Department SRO J. Pizzi.
