The purpose of the SRO program is to take a proactive approach to law enforcement by employing three major components: law enforcement, education, and counseling.
While assigned to a school, the SRO provides all law enforcement duties, educates the students on law related issues and counsels both students and parents on various topics.
The SRO interacts with the students as a positive role model. The intent is that the positive experiences students have with the SRO will bridge the gap between juveniles and law enforcement, and in doing so, help prevent juvenile crime.
Our School Resource Officer, Detective Lisa Pompilio, is intermittently assigned to the schools in our community, both public and private, and her main goal is to promote positive relations between youth and law enforcement
