Student Resource Officer
What is the role of a school resource officer?
School Resource Officers (SRO) are members of the Pequot Lakes Police Department who are contracted to work within the Pequot Lakes School District during the school year. The goal of an SRO is to create and maintain a safe educational environment for students, staff, and visitors. The primary role is to focus on establishing relationships with students and staff, being a resource and advocate for them and working to provide a safe school environment for everyone. SROs are not involved in determining student discipline and they are not involved in addressing student misconduct that does not involve suspected criminal conduct.
Potentially criminal behavior may be referred to law enforcement even if it does not involve violent or threatening behavior. For example, theft, intentional damage to property, possession or distribution of drugs or alcohol, and trespassing are examples of behavior that may be referred to law enforcement without necessarily involving violent or threatening behavior.
