School Resource Officers

A School Resource Officer (SRO) is a law enforcement officer who is assigned to work in a school setting. The primary role of an SRO is to ensure the safety and security of the school community, including students, teachers, and staff. SROs typically have three main functions: law enforcement, education, and mentorship.

The Allen County¬† Sheriff’s Department has partnerships with all three county school districts:

  • East Allen County Schools
  • Northwest Allen County Schools
  • Southwest Allen County Schools
  • as well as Canterbury Schools

Through these partnerships, the SROs assist the schools in creating and maintaining a positive and safe learning environment for Allen County’s more precious asset, our children.
