School Resource Officer
The School Resource Officer (SRO) job specialty is created to provide a law enforcement liaison to Prospect High School faculty, staff, students, and parents of students on police related matters of mutual concern and interest. This officer, by maintaining a continuing presence in the high school, can more effectively address and resolve problems, and can maintain a safe and secure environment for the achievement of the school’s educational goals and objectives. The SRO is under the direct supervision of the Investigative Section Commander, but coordinates work closely with specific school officials. During times when the high school is closed for normal schedules, as during the summer months, the SRO will supplement the staff of the Investigative Section or be utilized in other components as determined by the Deputy Chief of Field Operations.
