School Resource Officer Program

    In 2000, the Selma Police Department joined a growing list of police departments across the country by instituting a School Resource Officer or (SRO). The School Resource Officer concept is nationally recognized as a program that utilizes an experienced law enforcement officer in the school setting on a full time basis. The program is a team effort between the Selma Police Department and the Selma Unified school district, who provides funding for the program, cooperatively addressing issues that impact the safety, learning environment, and other community concerns in and around the school setting. The SRO's program is an integral part of the Community Oriented Policing philosophy. Each school becomes the School Resource Officer's "community" to provide a full range of personalized police services. Whether it is a theft, truancy, disorderly conduct, assaults or other violations of the law, the SRO's is there to handle it quickly and professionally. Currently school resource offiers are assigned to the campuses of Abraham Lincoln High and Selma High School as well as Hartland alertnative school campus.
