What Is A School Resource Officer?
According to the National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO), the goals for a school resource officer to provide a safe learning environment and valuable resources to school staff members, foster positive relationships with youth, develop strategies to resolve problems affecting youths and protect all students, so that they can reach their fullest potentials. NASRO considers the three main roles of a school resource officer to be an educator, informal counselor/mentor, and a law enforcement officer.
