BASIC SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER COURSE

The Basic School Resource Officer Course is a forty-hour block of instruction designed for any law enforcement officer with two years or less experience working in an educational environment. A law enforcement officer in this liaison position is commonly referred to as a School Resource Officer. The course emphasizes three main areas of instruction: functioning as a police officer in the school setting, working as a resource and problem solver, and the development of teaching skills. Attendees will be given a working knowledge of the School Resource Officer concept and how to establish a lasting partnership with their schools. Officers are required to attend all sessions in order to obtain the National School resource Officer Basic Course Certificate. There is a written examination, multiple discussions, and at least one graded practical exercise for each student.

Register on line directly with National Association of School Resource Officers.
