  • School Resource
The School Resource Officer program (SRO) is a nationally accepted program involving the placement of a law enforcement officer with the educational environment.  The officer, while in school, is involved in a variety of functions aimed at prevention.  Besides being an active high profile law enforcement officer, the SRO is a resource for students, parents, teachers and administration regarding law enforcement issues.  Working hand in hand with the Principal, the SRO assists with finding solutions to problems affecting students.
 
The basic duties of the SRO includes investigating crimes that occur within the school and on school property, creating a positive role model for students, creating a link between law enforcement and the students, and being a resource for parents, staff, administration, and students in regards to law enforcement and community problems.
 
At this time, Falfurrias Police Department has one SRO officer that works at the Falfurrias High School for the Brooks County Independent School District.
