Our children, their safety,  and their education are important to all parents and the community at large

Law enforcement and local schools have a long history of partnering together for the safety of students. Strong relationships have strengthened the ability of both agencies to prepare for and respond to criminal and/or threatening incidents that occur in school settings. School resource officer programs provide the crucial link between school districts and law enforcement agencies in their continued efforts to establish and maintain secure and safe learning environments.

School Resource Officers can be a valuable part of the school staff and an important link between students, teachers, administrators, the police, and the community. They can deter and respond to criminal behavior at school. They can provide security and coordinate response during emergency situations. As role models, they build a bond between young people and law enforcement that provides understanding from both sides. SROs can engage with students at special events and help to create an inclusive environment that is free from bullying. Students who feel safe become better learners and better citizens. School Resource Officers are not meant to be the school disciplinarian, but their presence absolutely help the students, staff and administrators focus on education & feel safe during their school day.

Please support this endeavor to protect our children, teachers, and school staff from threats of violence against our Community !

We, the parents, students, and community members in the NRCSD implore you to look seriously at revisiting the SRO program in our District before we become another statistic in the school shooting list.
