School Resource Program
 About Us

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and surrounding jurisdictions supply full-time school resource officers to all high schools and middle schools in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System. The security of our students allows the schools to supply a safe and productive learning environment.

The role of the school resource officer, SRO, is to serve the schools as their community officer and enforce all local, state and federal laws. The SRO also serves as a law related advisory to school administrators, parents and students regarding legal issues. 

In addition, some of the expectations of an SRO are to create a liaison with all stakeholders, formulate crime prevention tactics and provide security for school functions such as athletics events. SRO's also make themselves available for parent-teacher meetings and to enhance the problem solving initiatives of their division.

The SRO does not enforce or investigate violations of school policy rules or matters of school disciplinary actions and is not considered to be a member of the school staff or facility.

The SRO program is designed to promote and foster the ongoing partnership between law enforcement, the school system and the community to ensure safer schools, successful students and productive citizens.
