School Board Workshop on School Resource Officer Program


Today, the School Board of Broward County, Florida discussed the School Resource Officer (SRO) program, as part of ongoing discussions regarding safety and security enhancements, at a workshop. During the discussion, the Board expressed its preference to retain the current SRO program model, where BCPS partners with local municipalities and the Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) to assign a certified law enforcement officer as an SRO. In addition, the Board recognized the new legislative requirement to have an SRO or a school safety officer in each school at the start of the 2018/19 school year. The Board also acknowledged the need to participate in the guardian program in the event a municipal partner is unable to participate in the current model at the newly mandated level because of financial or officer availability reasons.

To watch the Board workshop, visit More information will be provided in the coming weeks.
