Goals of the SRO Program:
- Improve police and youth relations
- Increase positive attitudes towards law enforcement
- Provide for safe and secure learning environment
- Reduce juvenile crime through counseling
The SRO will assume three primary functions or roles in the school community:
As an Instructor - The SRO will provide a variety of educational opportunities to the school community through law related presentations for students, faculty, and parents.
As a Resource Provider - The SRO can provide informal counseling to students and parents. This counseling can range from mediation of student problems to guiding students and parents to the appropriate agency.
As a Police Officer - The SRO will be a positive law enforcement presence in the school community and act as a role model for students. Uniformed Officers also present a deterrent to violence, drug use, vandalism, and theft. Their presence will provide an immediate increase in safety and security for both student and staff.
