Several SROs took part in school resource officer training during spring break.During the week of March 24-28, 2014, several Miami-Dade Schools P.D. police officers successfully participated once again in School Resource Officer Training at the Miami Police Training Center in Downtown Miami.

This essential training focuses on each school resource officer’s (SRO’s) duties and responsibilities to educate, counsel, and protect their school communities. The core of this training goes beyond simply teaching officers the ins and outs of knowing how to provide a safe learning environment for our schools. It trains officers how to provide valuable resources to school staff, how to foster positive relationships with our youth, and how to develop strategies to resolve problems affecting our youth with the objective of helping and protecting every child so they can reach their fullest potential.

Congratulations to all SRO participants for a job well-done.
