As school board trustees we will
advocate for the following:
- Public school safety and discipline benefit from the visible presense of school resource officers (SRO) sometimes called school liaison officers (SLO). These programs bring police into local schools to participate in events related to public safety, to provide education on a variety of topics and to offer direct support of law enforcement within the school. It is worth noting that the same police officer(s) are typically assigned to each school. This allows them to get to know the school/students, and thus intervene in ways that are most effective. We will advocate for such programs within our public schools.
