School Resource Officer



School Resource Officer Sherry Borgeson


School Resource Officer Program:

The School Resource Officer (SRO) program is one of the steps in Community Oriented Policing. The SRO is an asset to be used by the community and the school in an attempt to address situations in the lives of students in a forum other than the judicial system.

The school resource officer program is a nationally accepted program involving the placement of a certified police officer within the educational environment. The partnership between the school district and the local law enforcement agency allows the SRO to work closely with the school administration to provide a safe learning environment, law-related education, and the expertise of a trained police officer.

The SRO is involved in a variety of functions:


As a visible, active law enforcement figure in the school district dealing with any law-related issues.


As a classroom, resource instructor in some of the following areas: law-related education, violence diffusion, safety programs, alcohol, and drug prevention, crime prevention and other related topics.


As a member of the administration team working hand in hand to solve problems in the school community.


A resource for students which will enable them to be associated with a police officer in the students environment.


As a resource to teachers, parents, and students on an individual basis dealing with individual problems or questions.


As a counseling resource in areas which affect the educational environment or of a law-related nature.


The SRO is a proactive approach to help today's youth cope with the pressures they find themselves having to confront.

The Cromwell School district has a unique situation in that the SRO is available and is routinely seen in all four schools in the district. The SRO is the DARE Instructor for the district and has implemented the DARE program in the fifth grade.
