SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICERS
School Resource Officers (SROs) have become an integral part of communities across the nation and around the world. Schools are smaller communities within the overall community and because of the concentration of children staff and parents in one location; it only makes sense to provide them with law enforcement services on a regular and reliable basis.
