School Resource Officers (SROs)

The School Resource Officer program is a problem-solving approach to reducing crime by assigning specially trained officers to our elementary, middle and high school campuses in order to establish relationships with students, parents and staff. The department has 11 SROs. 

The SRO program’s basic goals are to provide a safe learning environment and help reduce school violence, to improve school and law enforcement collaboration and to improve perceptions and relations between students, staff, and law enforcement officials.

While the primary duty is to reduce crime in the schools, SROs often assist with educational presentations, and routinely attend meetings and extracurricular activities specific to their assigned schools.
