School Resource Officers



The School Resource Officers at Reavis High School and Liberty Jr. High are seen as ďmen and women of many hatsĒ. The SRO is a police officer who investigates crimes, makes arrests, writes truancy tickets, and diffuses  conflict. At other times, the SRO is a counselor to students and parents, dealing with personal, legal, college planning and other issues. The Burbank SRO may represent the school much like an administrator, listening to complaints from staff, parents, students and the neighborhood. The SRO also takes on the active role of a teacher, making law enforcement presentations and answering questions about policing.

   The role of the School Resource Officer is clearly established and understood by staff and students. Confidence in the program is frequently reinforced when the SRO hears, "Iím glad we have you here". Additionally, the presence of a Youth Specialist assigned to Reavis and Liberty complements the staff as an additional resource to reach out to.

   Even though the current  enrollments at Both Reavis and at Liberty are quite large, only a small number of students are arrested for criminal behavior each year.

   The School Resource Officer was developed in response to a local and nationwide concern for safety in our schools and has been useful in promoting good behavior among students in school and at extracurricular events. The program is up and running at Reavis High School and Liberty Jr. High and expectations are high for its continued success.
