    March 8, 2011

    School Resource Officers (SROs) have proven to be one of the best community policing tools today, providing students with a trust for law enforcement officials. The main purpose is to develop rapport with the students so that students trust them enough to either inform them about other classmates planning violent incidences or turn to SROs for help when they themselves are in trouble. They develop mentor relationships with students as a proactive measure to prevent crime and tragedies by identifying and solving problems before they erupt into violence.
