School resource officers (SROs) are police officers who are responsible for providing security and crime prevention services in the school environment.
SROs are employed by a local police agency and work closely with administrators in an effort to create a safer environment for both students and staff. The responsibilities of SROs are similar to regular police officers in that they have the ability to make arrests, respond to calls for service, and document incidents that occur within their jurisdiction. School resource officers typically have additional duties to include mentoring and conducting presentations on youth-related issues.
Crime tips are sent directly to this division and information is kept confidential.
The number is (845)246-4802.
