School Resource Officer


 The Belgrade Police Department is committed to providing a safe environment for our students where they can focus and learn. A School Resource Officer (SRO) is a police officer whose primary assignment is within the local schools for the purpose of:

  • Security
  • Law Enforcement
  • Law-related education
  • Mentoring students

By working closely with the students, SROs are able to build a professional relationship with them and are often more approachable, become a resource for questions and advice and help develop positive attitudes. SROs work with teachers, parents and school staff to share responsibilities for crafting solutions to Law Enforcement and security problems within the school.
