Fort Wayne Community Schools - School Resource Officers

Fort Wayne Community Schools - School Resource Officers

In the 1999-2000 school year FWCS implemented its first SRO pilot at Snider High School. SRO’s are specially trained police officers who: First, are law-enforcement officer whose primary purpose is to "keep the peace". Secondly, are law-related educators who provide guidance on law-related issues. Thirdly, are law-related educators who provide schools with additional educational resource material.

In a NASRO survey, 91 percent of the SRO’s questioned say prevention makes up at least half of their jobs, with 56 percent saying their job is a 50/50 mix of preventative and reactionary duties. Only 7 percent say their main focus is enforcement and investigation

School Resource Officers perform an exceptionally wide range of specific tasks that focus on prevention and, in doing so, break the stereotype of police assigned to schools being strictly as a reactive measure for enforcement purposes. ---NASRO study
