Course detail: Kansas School Resource Officer Basic Training

Course Description:
Creating and maintaining a safer school environment is the primary goal of every SRO. This five-day training assists SROs in equipping themselves with the information and skills needed to identify, address and prevent crime and violence in Kansas schools.
