The Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Schools Act of 1968, as amended, Title I, Part Q, defines a school resource officer as "a career law enforcement officer, with sworn authority, deployed in community oriented policing, assigned by the employing police department or agency to work in collaboration with schools and community organizations."For example, the COPS in Schools grant program of the U. Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (the COPS Office) provided funding for SROs in and around primary and secondary schools.Since1999, the COPS Office has awarded over 0 million to more than 3,000 grantees, resulting in the hiring of more than 6,500 SROs (Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, 2008).Assigning officers to schools is becoming increasingly popular.
If you do not receive your offer letter by March 22, 2019, please visit the Educational Placement Center (EPC) at 555 Franklin Street.
Due to identity security, we cannot provide the school offer information over the phone or email.
This guide does not provide a history of SRO programs nor does it describe in detail the myriad types of SRO models currently available.
Similarly, although this guide highlights specific issues that communities considering the implementation of SRO programs should bear in mind (such as the legal issues that apply to police officers in schools), it is not an authoritative guide to the legal or other special issues that must be addressed with such programs.
