Guidelines of the SRO Program

  • SRO's are not school disciplinarians. An SRO takes action when a principal requests police involvement in a perceived violation of law or a violation of law in their presence.

  • SRO's coordinate their activities with principals and staff members and seek permission, advice and guidance before enacting any program within the school.

  • SRO's are police officers and are sworn to uphold the law.

  • SRO's make presentations on various subjects related to the law and the police in order to increase student understanding of the laws, police officers and the police mission.

  • SRO's are available for conferences with students, parents and faculty members to assist them with problems of a law enforcement or crime prevention nature.

  • At the request of principals, SRO's will take action against an unwanted guest who appear on campus and at school functions.

  • Should it become necessary to conduct informal police interviews with students, it will be done in accordance with state law.

  • SRO's give assistance to other police officers in matters regarding their school assignment whenever necessary.

  • SRO's will attend and participate in school functions as often as possible.
