School-Based Law Enforcement
According to the Federal Commission on School Safety, the ability of specially selected and trained SROs to establish trust relationships with students has been demonstrated to prevent school shootings. There have also been numerous documented instances of SROs directly intervening to quickly mitigate active school shootings. It is essential that a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) be put in place between the school or school district and the law enforcement agency providing the SRO(s). The selection, training and supervision of SROs should comport with standards established by the National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO).
