School Resource Officer (SRO)

Detective Cory Reeves

The School Resource Officers (SRO's) are detectives assigned to work within the public school system. Each School Resource Officer receives training specific to their position in the schools. They attend a 40-hour Basic School Resource Officer Training and a 24-hour Advanced SRO Training. Currently, we have four SRO's; one in each high school and one in each middle school, who also serve the respective elementary schools . The SRO's work closely with school administrators and need to be self motivated, have excellent interpersonal skills and good organizational skills. GFPD SRO's believe in the triad concept which divides the SRO’s responsibilities into three areas: Law enforcement officer, informal counselor and teacher.  Listed below are the general duties of SRO's:

  • Investigate criminal offenses that occur on school grounds or other school related events
  • Collect and preserve evidence that may be needed for prosecution purposes
  • Give classroom presentations as requested
  • Attend meetings with school administrators, parents, and students
  • Work with school officials to develop safety plans for the schools
  • Patrol the schools and surrounding area
  • Testify in Criminal Proceedings
  • Complete written police reports and other written documentation as required
  • Perform follow-up investigations as needed
