Welcome to the Maury County Sheriff’s Department School Resource Officer (SRO) page. SRO’s are specially trained deputies focused on serving the community at the heart of the communities’ resources, its children. Here you will find helpful information to keep you in touch and up to date with what’s happening at the school your child attends.

What is a School Resource Officer (SRO)? A School Resource Officer fills many different roles within the school system.

  • The SRO is a vital member of the school’s administrative team, helping solve problems within the school community.
  • The SRO is an educational resource for the students, teachers, administrators, and parents.
  • The SRO provides students with a positive role model, and a balanced view of law enforcement.
  • The SRO is a proactive law enforcement office, dealing with law related issues on campus.
  • The SRO is a counselor of students, teachers, and parents.

Teacher/Trainer

The SRO is available as a guest speaker or as a resource to nearly every classroom within the school.

Counselor

The SRO is a resource for both faculty and students and provides informal counseling and /or advice. These officers have received extensive training regarding programs and services available to handle problems and conflicts. Getting the right kind of help to those that need it is one of the SRO’s highest priorities.

Law Enforcement

Any law related issues that arise on campus is the SRO’s responsibility. In many ways, the school is no different than any other patrol beat. Whether it is child abuse, truancy, trespassing, disorderly conduct, theft, or some type of assault, the SRO is charged with proactively addressing the crimes that occur on campus, both through education and through special projects or programs. Every school is different, so each SRO must tailor his/her projects to both the problems and the school.

Mentoring

Mentoring is the central focus of the program. SRO’s have the opportunity to form lasting impressions on young people. To help students succeed, the SRO provides guidance, tutoring, and coaching.
