The School Resource Officers' Program dedicates an officer to the needs of a particular school's community. Currently, there are eight School Resource Officers (SROs): One is assigned to each of Arvada's three middle schools, one to each of our four high schools and one is shared between three of Arvada's elementary schools.
These officers act as a liaison between the police department, the school and the surrounding community. It is their mission to provide a safe and secure environment.
School Resource Officers Interact with School Communities
SROs mentor students, prepare and present timely information in the classroom and meet with parents and/or teachers. They are often role models for their students, giving them sound advice and encouraging feelings of self-worth. The SROs are committed to fostering an environment where students can thrive.
We encourage you to read the biographies of our School Resource Officers.
