School Resource Officers (SRO)

Lt. David Shankle
The School Resource Officer program provides a Deputy Sheriff as a School Resource Officer. We currently have 4 School Resource Officers in Scotland County Schools using the G.R.E.A.T. Program.

The SRO program has been a very successful program; the 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.
