SRO SUPERVISORS AND MANAGEMENT

SRO Supervisors and Management course is for police supervisors and school administrators who have the responsibility of implementing, supervising, managing, and evaluating school-based police officers and/or programs.  The goal is to provide managers with information, skills and strategies to develop, coordinate, and maintain a successful SRO program in their school communities.

Throughout the country, the issue of school violence and the safety of students, faculty and parents at school has become an issue of great concern. Partnerships between law enforcement and schools can be an effective and comprehensive investment in enhancing the safety of our school communities. As the role of the school resource officer expands and becomes increasingly more complex, so too does the role and responsibilities of the person who manages the program. This three day course is designed to assist new and veteran SRO supervisors to develop and maintain the best possible SRO program for their community.

Who Should Attend:

Strong, effective management is a cornerstone of an effective school resource officer program. The program supervisor must recruit, build and maintain a productive and successful unit. He or she must be able to work with a police administration, multiple police divisions, a school administration, city or county administrations, school boards, the business community, parents, neighborhoods and of course the officers they are assigned to manage.

A variety of skills are necessary to perform the SRO unit manager’s function. It is also necessary for school administrators to understand and have knowledge of the function of the SRO unit manager and the program. Participants who should attend this course include:
