School Resource Officers


The purpose of the School Resource Officer (SRO) program is to provide multiple services to students, faculty, parents, staff and the community that make up each school. The SRO works hand-in- hand with the school administration to instill a sense of safety for all students and faculty members in order to create a safe environment for everyone to work and study. The SRO not only enforces laws and investigates reported crimes on campus, but also serves as an advisor and instructor. The SRO consults with students, parents, faculty, staff and community citizens with issues of personal nature that affect the educational process of each person involved. The SRO also acts as a guest lecturer in class where personal and professional experiences can offer a different insight to a particular subject matter the teacher may be instructing.
