School Resource Officer

The SRO, School Resource Officer, is a nationally accepted program involving the placement of a law enforcement officer within the educational environment. The officer, while in school, is involved in a variety of functions aimed at prevention. Besides 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 a link to other service agencies, which provide preventive and counseling services within the school district. Working hand-in-hand with the Principal in each school, the SRO assists with finding solutions to problems affecting school age children.

The basic outline of duties for the SRO includes investigating crimes that occur within the school and on school property, providing security at school sporting events, creating a positive role model for students, creating a link between law enforcement and the students, and being a resource for parents, staff, administrators, and students in regards to law enforcement and community problems.
