The main goal of the SRO is to prevent juvenile delinquency by promoting relations between youth and law enforcement. The SRO position encompasses three major components allowing the SRO to achieve this goal - law enforcement, education, and counseling. These 3 components allow the SRO to take a proactive approach to law enforcement. SRO’s are not just “cops” on campus. They teach law related education and other relevant topics, they counsel students on various concerns, provide a safe, secure campus and are involved in the student’s life as a positive role model. The intent is that the positive experiences officers have with the students will bridge the gap between law enforcement and the youth of our community.
