School Resource Officers
The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office is fortunate to have great working relationships with each of the school districts in Monroe County. The Sheriff’s Office partners with seven school districts in Monroe County to provide school resource officers (SRO). Each school district pays 67% of the cost of the deputy while the County of Monroe pays the remaining 33%. The primary goal of the SROs is to mentor and build relationships with the students and staff. As noted in the title “resource” the deputies are to be a resource to the students and staff while ensuring a safe and secure environment. In addition to their police duties, the SROs provide security for most sporting events and teach D.A.R.E. in their respective school districts. The calls for service handled by the deputies in each school district will be noted under their respective schools.
