Trimble County School District TCSO Resources Officers Program
Having a School Resource Officer in a school does not mean that the school is unsafe. It does mean that the community is taking a positive and proactive step toward creating an orderly, safe and secure environment in the schools for our children.
The role of the SRO differs depending on the needs of the school, however it is our intent for the SRO program to remain as consistent as possible. The SRO receives specialized training through the Department of Criminal Justice Training Center in Richmond, Kentucky.
Your school administrators will work with the Trimble County Sheriff’s Office to design a program that is right for students. We encourage you to contact those administrators or your SRO with any questions or comments. The School Resources Officer program is a nationally accepted program that places Law Enforcement Officers in Schools.
