Dear fellow parents:

We need to make our voices hear to demonstrate how vehemently we disagree with Sen. Winfield's proposed bill to remove School Resource Officers in Connecticut public schools. Not only is his logic riddled with skewed statistics, his insinuation that SROs are employed to inflict discipline is completely incorrect.

SROs are in schools for a resource: to guide students in need, to educate, to facilitate much needed relationships with the community. SROs bridge a much needed gap on our schools where mental health is already severely underfunded. They are counselors, cheerleaders, and educators. We need them.

SROs also protect our students from many threats. Acts of violence threaten on schools on a daily basis - from both the inside and outside. As a parent, it is terrifying to watch the news and see history repeat itself again and again. All too often, in reports after these horrific acts of violence, it is noted how and where SROs could have made a difference. Please don't let that be in your children's school.

I am asking you to oppose this bill. Not only do I ask you to join the fight against the removal of SROs, but also to highlight and offer help in building their role in schools.
