SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER/JUVENILE DETECTIVE

The School Resource Officer (SRO) position was developed to address youth issues in our community by working with school officials and local agencies to identify and correct behavioral problems with children before they become a serious problem. Many times when a child commits a minor offense it is because there is a larger problem that needs to be addressed. Intervention through counseling or mentoring can often solve the problem in the early stages, avoiding the juvenile having to enter the juvenile justice system. The SRO accomplishes this by spending time with and getting to know the juveniles at the schools and reviewing all cases involving juveniles to determine the best course of action to take to prevent the action from reoccurring.

Currently, one officer is assigned as the full time School Resource Officer.

The School Resource Officer provides service to the students of our community who attend Brisbane Elementary, Lipman Intermediate School, Jefferson High School, Terra Nova High School, Oceana High School and El Camino High School. The School Resource Officer provides a visible and positive image for law enforcement.
