SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER PROGRAM
School Resource Officers, also known as SRO’s, are law enforcement personnel that apply a community policing philosophy within the school environment. Schools are their permanent assignment in order to proactively address safety and security issues.
SRO’s are required to perform three vital roles in their assigned schools. These roles are as follows: law enforcement, law-related counseling, and law-related education. Through these roles officers provide a service to the community by establishing themselves as a resource for teachers, students, and parents. This allows the program to provide a safe learning environment for children.
Currently, the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office has deputies at Baptist Hill
- Middle School, Fort Johnson Middle School, Clark Corporate Academy, and Lincoln Middle - High School.
