Creating and maintaining a safer school environment is the primary goal of every SRO. This is a Kansas-developed advanced class for School Resource Officers who have previously participated in a basic School Resource Officer training. This three-day training assists SRO's in equipping themselves with additional information and skills they may need to build their school's program for continued positive growth. The training will also help SRO's learn to recognize, address and prevent crime commonly found within schools. The topics covered in this 24-hour training include building relationships, CPTED/Crisis Drills/Practicals, Kansas School Law, Responding to At-Risk students, Human Trafficking, Interdiction exercises, and networking opportunities.
For an additional cost, a two-day elective course is being offered, Internet Crimes Against Children. This course is designed to develop a basic understanding of the profession of computer forensics and its role in today's volatile digital evidence world. Participants will gain an understanding of the use of several venues and software currently available to collect and memorialize volatile digital evidence.
- Participants will develop techniques that will help them build rapport with a diverse student population that will enable them to communicate with those same students during times of varying degrees of stress.
- Participants will be able to recognize and address safety issues and potential illegal activity within their school setting.
- Participants will be able to identify and explain their role as SRO officers in terms of student safety and law enforcers.
