SRO: School Resource Officer

School Resource Officers on StepsOSROA Logo

An SRO is a certified, sworn officer assigned to a school on a long-term basis. SRO’s are trained to perform three primary roles: Law Enforcement Officer, law-related Counselor, and law-related educator. The officer also collaborates with the school and the community as a resource for safety and security issues. The SRO is also the liaison between the School District and the Sheriff.

The SRO assists the school administration in maintaining a safe and secure environment. School administrators benefit from the SRO’s training, knowledge, and experience in handling situations involving possible weapons violations or identifying dangerous controlled substances. The SRO provides a highly visible presence to deter or identify trespassers on campus. School Resource Officers will have contact with a majority of students in a school. SRO’s perform classroom presentations on related issues, allowing them to interact with students. The connection that the SRO has with students in the classroom is a positive learning experience.
