SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICERS Keeping Our Schools Safe
The School Resource Officer program provides a Deputy Sheriff as a School Resource Officer in elementary, middle and high schools within Brunswick County. There are currently twenty-one School Resource Officers. Elementary School Resource Officers utitilize the D.A.R.E. Program.
School Resource Officers become a role model to the students and also act as a crime deterrent. The one-on-one relationship between the students and the officers allows problems to be solved before they escalate beyond control. They also work in conjunction with the School officials to maintain a safe and orderly environment at the school.
