Feb. 15 declared National School Resource Officer Appreciation Day

Today is National School Resource Officer Appreciation Day! Please join us in thanking our amazing SROs for everything they do to help keep our schools safe and for cultivating positive relationships with our students, families, staff, and communities. We LOVE our SROs!!

SROs are full-time law enforcement officers with sworn law enforcement authority, trained in school-based policing and crisis response and assigned by an employing law enforcement agency to work with schools using community-oriented policing concepts.

SROs bridge the gap between youth and law enforcement and embrace a triad concept of school policing, serving in informal counseling, education and law enforcement roles to support the students and communities they serve. SROs are valuable and essential members of the education community who deserve unwavering respect and support from the public in the pursuit of keeping schools and students safe.

Thank you Officer Shelton & Officer Franks!
