School Resource Officers

Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs are community based programs that reflect the needs and concerns of their communities. Programs are typically organized at the individual school level or among a cluster of schools or school districts. As an officer already working in a school(s) you are well-positioned to be a partner in a SRTS effort.
