Two More Parkway Nurses Earn National Credentials

Parkway School District’s Kimberly Morelli (West Middle School) and Karen Malik (Green Trails Elementary) earned the Nationally Certified School Nurse credential, which validates their specialized knowledge and expertise as school nurses.

Parkway now tops the largest number of nationally certified school nurses found in Missouri, with a total of 22.

The NCSN credential is granted to registered nurses who meet educational, employment and other criteria, and who have successfully passed the national examination managed by the National Board for Certification of School Nurses. The NCSN process is accredited by the American Board of Nursing Specialties, whose rigorous standards ensure that the credentialing process of the NBCSN meet or exceed industry standards for certification and that its examination is reflective of the knowledge expected of the proficient school nurse.

Is Your Security Camera Registered with Local Police?

Chesterfield Police Department’s Community Video Program enables residents and business owners to register the locations and capabilities of personal security camera systems so that local police can collect incidence-related evidence when local crimes are committed. 

Police officers assure that information about participating cameras is stored in a secure, private database. 

Individuals are contacted by police when a crime occurs in the vicinity of certain cameras, and officers believe reviewing that footage will assist the investigation or provide leads. 

For more details, contact the Chesterfield Detective Bureau at 636.537.3000.
