A good School Resource Officer focuses on the triad concept of school-based policing. The triad concept divides the SRO's responsibilities into educator, counselor, and law enforcement. While an SRO's primary responsibility is safety, the SRO should also serve as a teacher of law-related lessons as well as those lessons which promote a positive image of law enforcement for the youth in their community and abroad. This training is designed to impart the value of seizing teaching opportunities on a regular basis to share specialized knowledge and build relationships with the school community.
The purpose of this training is to develop a lesson plan which an SRO is comfortable teaching to audiences within their school community. Participants will work individually or with a small group to develop a topic into a class presentation using PowerPoint or slides. In addition to the class presentation they develop, each officer will have access to presentations created by other groups in the class to use in their schools.
Participants must bring a device on which they are comfortable typing, easy access to PowerPoint and ability to save information to a flash drive. Participant should have a working knowledge of PowerPoint.
