School Resource Officers

The Kingman Police Department has sponsored a local school resource officer program for generations. 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 SROs' first responsibility is law enforcement. They receive specialized and in-depth training specific to the needs of children and adolescents in a school setting.

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 aimed at prevention while in the school. In addition to being a very active, high profile law enforcement officer, the SRO is a resource for students, parents, teachers and administration regarding legal issues. Working hand-in-hand with the administration of each school, the SRO assists with finding solutions to problems facing today's school-aged children.

"The presence of School Resource Officers in our schools provide both the students and the school staff with a valuable asset. These officers become part of the very fabric of our schools, participating in activities, speaking to students who are struggling, even "supervising" during lunch and recess time. They are always willing to provide information to individual classes and to speak to the student body when needed. Because these officers have a constant presence in our schools, they are able to build positive relationships with our students; and this is, perhaps, the most important part of their job."
