School Resource Officers, or SRO's, are police officers who are assigned to schools on a full time basis. The program was first implemented in 1992.
One of the goals of the SRO program is to break down barriers between police and youth and to provide positive role models.

Since these officers are located in the schools, SRO's will be more aware of unhealthy or negative behaviors before they cause a student to be referred to the Criminal Justice System. There are three main responsibilities of the
SRO - Law Enforcer, Instructor, and Advisor.
