School Resource Officers
The role of theses officers is one of both police officer and guidance counselor. First and foremost, the SRO is a police officer whose beat is primarily a particular school or group of schools. In the City of Medford, all public schools grades K-12 will maintain the presence of a SRO. The SRO is there to act as a law enforcement resource to the school administration, staff and student body. He/she is there to foster a safe school environment where the population can feel safe and secure and focus on the school’s primary goal- education. The SRO will be available to listen, advise and refer to proper agencies when called upon by either students or faculty with the main objective of bettering the school community.
School resource officers wear the hats of many professions; a law enforcement officer to uphold and enforce the law and provide safe learning environment, a friend when one is needed, and a resource to help steer those in need of assistance, in the right direction.
