School Resource Officers

What is a School Resource Officer?


School Resource Officers (SRO) are members of the Patrol Division who are assigned to serve schools in the unincorporated parts of the County. They work in collaboration with educators, students, parents, and the community to reduce crime, drug abuse, violence, and to provide a safe school environment.

School Resource Officers from the Sheriff's Office must attain certification by the National Association of School Resource Officers following 40 hours of training.


How do SROs Provide a Safe School Environment?

  • Patrol school grounds, respond to calls for service in the area, and participate in juvenile enforcement missions to prevent juvenile delinquency

  • Provide guidance on ethical issues in a classroom setting or informal settings

  • Provide individual counseling and mentoring to students

  • Give classroom presentations on the work of the SRO, the criminal justice system, and other related topics that help to build an understanding of law enforcement's role in the community

  • Participate in school-related events
