School Resource Officers

The Kingman Police Department has sponsored a local school resource officer program for almost twenty years. The program currently provides a sergeant and five full time police officers to the local elementary and high school districts. The officers are Kingman Police Department officers, but do have offices in the local schools. The SRO's first responsibility is law enforcement.

The SRO program is a nationally accepted program involving the placement of a law enforcement officer within the educational environment. The officers are involved in a variety of functions while in the school aimed at prevention. In addition to being a very active high profile law enforcement officer, the SRO is a resource for students, parents, teachers and administration regarding law issues. Working hand in hand with the Principle in each school, the SRO assists with finding solutions to problems facing today's school aged children.

"The school resource officer plays an important role in the daily school activities. He or she is always visible and available. Our students respect and admire the SRO's. Their presence helps make our schools a comfortable, safe place. They are readily accessible for counseling, class presentations, even coaching or playground duties. I can't imagine our schools without these invaluable team members." Betsy Parker, K.E.S.D. #4 School Superintendent.
