• Deputy Gary Scott

    The primary mission of the School Resource Officer is to create a partnership between the County Sheriff’s Office and the County Schools. The School Resource Officer (SRO) Program places offices in schools in an effort to create and maintain a safe environment for our youth, faculty, and staff. It reflects a comprehensive community focus which integrates the officers, the SRO’s, stationed in the school with the existing network of resources in the community. The SRO fulfills three roles as they act as a resource for the schools: they first and foremost are law enforcement officers whose primary purpose is to “keep the peace” in the schools so that students can learn; secondly they act as a link to support services both inside and outside the school environment; and thirdly they provide the schools with an additional resource by sharing their expertise in the classroom.
