School Resource Officers (SROs)
Greendale Schools and the Village of Greendale Police Department work in collaboration for the safety and wellbeing of all school students, families and the community. Part of this work includes the assignment of two GPD officers to serve as School Resource Officers (SRO).
Greendale Schools SROS are a resource to the District’s staff, students, and educational program and work in our public and parochial schools. Each visits their assigned schools regularly, participating in classroom activities, student assemblies and family after school and evening events.
School Resource Officers help to build positive police-community relationships, assisting the school staff, students and families in referrals to various services and resources available both on-campus and in the community. In addition, the SROs provide formal and informal educational opportunities to discuss law, Village ordinances, the justice system, and law enforcement on crime prevention and safety programs with students, staff, and parents.
This program is a partnership with the GPD and the Greendale Board of Education. Board Policies 882.1 and 882.1 - Rule provide guidance for this relationship.
