School Resource Officer's
The Cleveland County Sheriff's Office provides a School Resource Officer (SRO) for deployment in schools within our
jurisdiction. The SRO program places a regular sworn law enforcement officer on a full-time basis within Cleveland
County's middle and high schools where he or she acts as a liaison between law enforcement and the schools.
There are two deputies that rotate among the Cleveland County Elementary Schools.
The SRO program is a collaborative effort by:
- Law Enforcement Officers
In an effort to reduce:
- Drug Abuse
- and provide a safe school environment
The SRO's serve as a positive role model, while enforcing laws and investigating criminal behavior in their
schools. They also work closely with school officials to help develop school safety issues as well as providing
security for all school functions.
