School Resource Officer Program
The School Resource Officer program is offered in cooperation with Roanoke County Schools, with 10 SROs permanently assigned to Cave Spring Middle and High Schools, Glenvar Middle and High Schools, Hidden Valley Middle and High Schools, Northside Middle and High Schools, and William Byrd Middle and High Schools, and the Burton Center for Arts and Technology. The SROs also assist at elementary schools with law-related incidents or programs.
SROs provide classroom instruction on law enforcement topics and the Virginia Rules Program, an expansion of the Class Action program offered from the Virginia Attorney General's Office. SROs hold classroom presentations in the high schools and middle schools. conduct classroom observations and special events at schools, and hold conferences with students, staff and parents.
