|Course Description:||The five-day SRO Basic Training course provides the participant with the history, philosophy and basic skills to serve as an SRO. Participants will receive instruction in juvenile law, counseling skills, development of a referral network, identification and ways to handle exceptional students, and classroom training techniques. In addition, participants will learn about current trends in SRO programs, law-related education and adolescent suicide.
The course is offered primarily for law enforcement personnel who have been involved in school-based programs for less than three years. School administrators and persons interested in increasing their knowledge of the SRO program will benefit from this training. The curriculum is approved by the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission as an “advanced course” and is a salary incentive course for law enforcement officers who successfully complete an exam.
*This is one of the courses necessary for the SROP designation.
