The School Resource Officer (SRO) Program

The School Resource Officer (SRO) Program, formerly called the Educational Facilities Officer Program, is an outreach program sponsored by the Montgomery County Police (MCP), Gaithersburg City Police (GPD), Rockville City Police (RCP) and Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) in partnership with the Montgomery County Public Schools.  School Resource Officers (SROs) serve as liaisons between the police departments and the high schools for school and police related concerns and incidents.

A School Resource Officer (SRO) is a sworn uniformed law enforcement officer trained in emergency preparedness, crisis management, community policing concepts, and problem solving who is assigned to work as a liaison to MCPS.

The SRO’s primary function is to enhance the safety and security of the learning environment for students, staff, and the school community in the Montgomery County Public High Schools.  Other duties and responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Acting as a resource and assisting with emergency preparedness as well as safety awareness education to the high school population age groups.

  • Meeting regularly with Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) staff, students, and parents, to exchange information and discuss issues of concern within the school.

  • Serving as a point of contact to deliver MCPD programs such as crime prevention, conflict resolution and mediation, drug and alcohol awareness, violence prevention, gang awareness, and community relations and outreach.

  • Assisting with calls for service and incidents occurring within their assigned schools.

  • Assisting with traffic safety and traffic enforcement activities at their assigned schools.
