School Resource Officers have had a huge impact on students in the Rutherford County School system over the years.
Like many adults, some students view police officers solely as enforcers of the laws. By establishing a daily rapport with their school's SRO, students will not only gain positive role models, but also a better understanding of police officers' many other duties and responsibilities.
SRO Sergeant Bill West stated...
The SRO Program was first implemented in Flint, Michigan, in 1951. Since the program's inception, it has successfully been put into practice in 35 states. Sheriff Truman Jones started the SRO Program in Rutherford County in 1993 with five officers in five schools.
SRO Rodeo is nearing:
The annual School Resource Officer Rodeo will be held in Murfreesboro on March 3rd and 4th at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum on Thompson Lane...
The School Resource Officers in Rutherford County sponsor the Lone Star Rodeo annually.
Proceeds raised during the main performance nights will go towards helping the SRO raise much needed funds to their programs, which help the 40,000 (plus) school children of Rutherford County.
For more information, contact any SRO at their school or call our information line at (615) 904-3070.
