School resource officers prevent more incidents than public knows — NASRO to PoliceOne


“One of the things the public doesn’t see is how many SROs stop these kinds of situations (school shootings) before a round is ever fired. Through building relationships with students, SROs gain valuable intelligence and are able to investigate and stop these things before they ever become an issue.”

That’s just a part of what NASRO executive director Mo Canady​ shared with PoliceOne.com​ for a comprehensive article on the value, roles, specialized training and careful selection of school resource officers. This article is well worth reading for anyone in any community that has or is considering an SRO program.
