School Resource Officers

In 1988, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office partnered with the Douglas County School District to create a School Resource Officer (SRO) program to positively impact the relationship between law enforcement and the young people of the community. The program began with one officer serving all secondary schools in the county. At that time, the main focus of the program was creating a liaison between the Sheriff’s Office and students. Consequently, the SRO worked in a non-enforcement capacity, concentrating instead on teaching classes, informally counseling students, and fostering positive relationships with student leaders.

Since then, the needs of the community have changed, and the role of the SRO has expanded to meet those needs. Today, we have eight SRO’s, one covering each of the seven high schools and their “feeder” middle schools and one at Valor Christian. Today, SRO’s are a uniformed presence in the schools, taking incident and offense reports, investigating crimes that occur on school grounds, and gathering intelligence information about potential threats to the schools. At the same time, the SRO’s have retained their liaison, educational, and counseling roles, resulting in a full range of interaction with students on a daily basis.

Each of our SRO’s has completed formal School Resource Officer training sponsored by the National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO). They also attend periodic refresher training sponsored by the Colorado Association of School Resource Officers (CASRO), both locally and nationally, to ensure that we remain on the cutting edge of this vital community service.

The current School Resource Officer assignments by school are:
