What is a School Resource Officer?

The School Resource Officer program (SRO) is a nationally accepted program involving the placement of a law enforcement officer within the educational environment. The officer, while on school grounds, is involved in a variety of functions aimed at safety, prevention, and law enforcement. 

The SRO is a resource for students, parents, teachers, and administration regarding law-related issues. SROs are a link to other service agencies that provide preventive and counseling services within the school district.
