Law Enforcement Executives

Involvement in Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs can benefit law enforcement agencies in a variety of ways. Participating in Safe Routes to School activities can draw positive attention to your agency while engaging the public on critical safety issues. Your agency can take a leading role by enhancing the quality of life in your community and by building bridges to increased cooperation and participation through law enforcement activities. Safe Routes to School ideally will involve the participation of a wide range of law enforcement officers, from Patrol Operations to School Resource Officers. Everyone can play a role.
