School Resource Officers Program

 

The School Resource Officers (SRO) Program places probation officers with specialized training as school-based law enforcement officers, to serve as School Resource Officers (SRO) in schools. SROs work with school administrators and school security/safety professionals to protect students, school faculty and staff, and the schools they attend. The SROs are trained in the National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO) “triad” concept of school-based policing, a true and tested strength of the program. Triad responsibilities include: law-related educator, law enforcement officer, and informal counselor or mentor within the context of knowledge, training, and expertise as a law enforcement officer. SROs are a liaison between school, court, police, and other law enforcement officers and agencies.

The program goal is to provide safe learning environments, provide valuable resources to school staff, promote a positive relationship with students, and develop strategies to resolve problems affecting youth with the goal of protecting every child so they can reach their fullest potential. Nine (9) SROs are currently assigned to the six (6) public high schools.
