RE: School Resource Officer Video

We are happy to provide you with a complementary copy of a video entitled School Resource Officers. This video was developed by the Department of Education in response to requests for information about the School Resource Officer program in Virginia. We acknowledge with grateful appreciation the cooperation of the Department of Criminal Justice Services in providing resources to fund this project.

This video includes information about the School Resource Officer (SRO) program in Virginia’s public schools. You will see SROs in action and hear from them, as well as from educators, about the positive impact the school/law enforcement partnership has had for students throughout the state. We think you will find this information useful in helping staff, parents, and students understand the role of the SRO in promoting school safety.

In addition to this free copy, you may request additional copies for $5 each by contacting Marsha Owens via e-mail at (mailto:mowens@mail.vak12ed.edu) or by phone at

(804) 225-2928.
