KEEP SROs IN OUR HOWARD COUNTY SCHOOLS

ATTENTION Friends, neighbors, and fellow residents of Howard county,

In recent months we have seen an unyielding and well orchestrated demand to remove SROs in our Howard County Schools and across the nation. We are asking all to make their voices heard and to take action in response to these calls. Board members are actively evaluating and considering steps to remove this irreplaceable and integral part of our youth’s education and it would be a mistake to not give everyone the opportunity to show their continued support of the SRO program in Howard county . Our SROS are the first line of defense for your child’s safety against those that wish your child harm, such as potential school shooters, and those that wish to disrupt the safe and secure environment we owe our children to learn in. Besides being essential to our children’s safety SROs do so much more for the community that goes unrecognized. These officers create positive interactions and lifelong relationships with students that they can take and share in their communities. They are not only there in times of crisis but also as a additional trusted member of the school system that children can go to with concerns and problems. They bring food, clothes and gifts to members of our community that maybe in need, they run camps, mentorship programs and other valuable programs during summer months, and provide security for extra curricular activities. They are highly trained to notice and identify warnings of children living in despicable and abusive situations. They are an extra set of eyes and ears. They love our children and our community. Our Howard county SROs deserve much more respect and recognition but never ask for it they simply do their job the best they can every day. This is why we are asking you to please sign this petition and please reach out to your local School Board Members, Superintendent, and County Executive to tell them all the positive things these invaluable members of our community and school system do for us. Please support the movement to keep SROs in our Howard County Schools.
