ODESSA - Parents and children aren't the only ones gearing up for back to school.

Odessa Police say they plan to be out in full force.

On Friday, ECISD and Odessa Police along with Crimestoppers kicked off a campaign to remind you to slow down in school zones.

Officers say new signs and banners will be put up around all Odessa schools to warn drivers they will be on the lookout.

Law enforcement will be especially alert during the first three weeks of classes.
