The School Resource Officer program is a 'promising' strategy because it enables communities and schools to address school violence with both prevention and intervention techniques. Having a SRO on a school campus can prevent problems from happening. It can enhance a school's capacity to address its safety and security concerns. When problems do arise, SRO's can intervene quickly...SRO's can contribute to a safe school planning efforts and offer their schools a resource to turn to when emergencies occur. Ultimately, the presence of a SRO assists in making the school safer and more secure for students, teachers, and staff. The entire community benefits as well because learning is more likely to take place in such an environment.

Classroom Instruction

 

We offer a set of core classes that have been planned, tested and proven to be relevant to the needs of our youth. Through the cooperative efforts of SROs and educators, our program complements the school's curriculum.

 

Campus Safety 

 

 The safety aspect of the School Resource Officer program aims to make schools safer, thereby fostering better learning environments. A SRO works with school administrators, teachers, parents, and students to establish and maintain security procedures that emphasize safety and crime prevention.

  • Emergency operations

  • Crime prevention and response

  • Security plans and protocols

  • Security supervision

  • Environment and design review

 

Mentoring

 

 SROs interact and work with students, parents, teachers, and administrators during the school day, and may participate in school-related extra-curricular activities. Informal interaction also provides a good opportunity to reinforce the lessons or answer questions that students were afraid to ask in front of a group. The program promotes youth/police interaction, trust and communication, and students often share crucial school safety information with the officer.

 

Having a School Resource Officer in a school does not mean that the school is unsafe. It does mean that the community is taking positive and proactive steps to create orderly, safe, and secure schools.
