What is a School Resource Officer (SRO)?
A SRO is a police officer that is assigned to a school or schools. The SRO's primary duties are to establish communications between the students and the police. In doing this the SRO will create a level of trust and respect. The SRO encourages students in their role of taking responsibility for their decisions and actions. As a police officer the SRO investigate crimes occurring on campus, interviews suspects and witnesses, makes referrals when needed and arrests when necessary. The SRO also mediates issues between students, supplies student counseling and referrals when needed, works towards eliminating bulling, conducts presentations within the school’s curriculum, works to prevent conflicts between students, and other tasks as necessary. This program is based on a cooperative effort of the Board of Education and the Police Department to work towards a safe environment for our children to learn and grow.
