Security guard, school resource officer are different jobs — NASRO to CBS Pittsburgh

Published Thursday, February 6, 2020

NASRO Region Three director Aaron Vanatta explained the difference between a security guard and a school resource officer in a news story on KDKA TV-2, Pittsburgh. “I think what your school security does is more of the hall monitor type person – maybe someone that escorts someone to the office, or things like that. As school resource officers, school police officers, we don’t get involved in discipline. We try to just do the outreach, the counseling and enforce the laws,” Vanatta told reporter LIsa Washington. See the full story.
