School Resource Officers (SRO)

  • About the program

    The School Resource Officer Unit reflects a nationally accepted program that places law enforcement officers within local schools. The unit was designed to develop partnerships between law enforcement and the school community.

    The aim is to provide a positive law enforcement influence that concentrates on safety and security; encourages relationships between officers, school administrators, teachers and students; and fosters education.

    The Anchorage Police Department views the School Resource Officer Unit as an opportunity to continue the strong partnership with the Anchorage School District and to provide a safe working and learning environment for teachers, support staff, administrators and students. School Resource Officers will attempt to reduce juvenile crime through law enforcement, education and prevention programs. School Resource Officers will work with students to build trust and break down barriers.
