School Resource Officers provide a law enforcement presence and support prevention efforts in their assigned schools and in the neighborhoods and business districts surrounding these schools. An SRO must engage three distinct roles in their designated school: Law Enforcement Officer, Law Enforcement Counselor, and Law Related Educators.
