The SBCUSD Police Department’s Field Operations encompasses Patrol, School Resource Officer (SRO) Program, and our Campus Security Officer (CSO) Program which is the largest section of the department serving a diverse school community through proactive community based policing and programs.
The SRO program is a highly visible and proactive approach strategy in school-based community policing. Our SROs routinely engage students in a manner that fosters healthy relationships, build trust, and provides ongoing intervention and prevention techniques in our schools throughout the district.
The SRO program enables our campus-based officers to work collaboratively with parents, students, staff, administrators and the community to address quality of life concerns, neighborhood violence, and other challenges that can impact a student’s ability to learn.
Our SROs are multifaceted officers that mentor, coach, motivate, and inspire our youth on a regular basis through positive interactions that not only keep them safe but on track to graduation.
