School Resource Officer Information

The School Resource Officer (SRO) Program is the next step in Community Oriented Policing (COP). The SRO is an asset used by the community and the school in an attempt to address situations in the lives of students in a manner other than the judicial system, if possible.

The School Resource Officer Program is a state and national accepted program involving the placement of a law enforcement officer within the educational environment. The officer is involved in variety of situations within the school aimed at prevention, deterrence and safety. In addition to being an active high profile law enforcement officer,the SRO is a resource for students, parents, teachers and administrators regarding law issues. Another duty for the SRO is being the link to other service agencies that provide preventive and counseling services within the school district. Working hand-in-hand with the principle and his staff, the SRO assists with finding solutions to keep the school safe and to present ideas to assist in dealing with everyday problems that affect our youth.

The SRO is a proactive approach to deal with the pressures that today's youth finds itself having to confront. This includes the use of the internet, alcohol, drug, and tobacco, along with peer pressure, gang activity, and sex. These situations are not only in the schools, but in the community as well.

Please call the main office, if you wish to contact the SRO.
