Tyler Vancil has been employed as a police officer for almost five years. He began his career with the
Medford Police Department in September of 2013 and in February of 2015, he transferred to Roseburg
Police Department to be closer to family. In September of 2016 Officer Vancil was selected to be a
School Resource Officer and has been at Roseburg High School for the last two years. Officer Vancil
learned about the CLEAR Alliance Teen Marijuana Education Course (TMEC), and asked Roseburg High
School if they would allow him to get into the classroom and teach students about marijuana. Roseburg
High School agreed to this, and eventually the school district was on board with teaching the curriculum
as well. The Roseburg School District asked that Officer Vancil teach at the middle school level as well.
Over the last year, Officer Vancil taught the TMEC curriculum to just over 1,000 students in the Roseburg
School District, grades 6th-9th. Officer Vancil enjoys working at the schools and building relationships
with the children. When Officer Vancil is not typing reports or teaching in the classroom, he is often
dropping in to PE classes and participating with the students. Officer Vancil is married with three small
children and enjoys spending time with his family when he’s not working. Officer Vancil is also the
varsity boys’ basketball coach at North Douglas High School in Drain, Oregon.
