School Resource Officer Program

“Protecting our most precious resource, OUR CHILDREN”

The School Resource Officer is a certified law enforcement officer who is permanently assigned, on a full-time basis, to provide coverage to a school or a set of schools.

The School Resource Officer supports and facilitates the educational process within the Osceola County Public School System by providing a safe and secure environment through building and establishing meaningful relationships with students and staff and proactively interacting with the school community to ensure the enforcement of state laws, preservation of public order, protection of life and the prevention, detection, or investigation of crime. The deputy will work effectively with students, parents, school personnel and community agencies to support teaching and learning in the schools. The School Resource Officer will patrol the property to protect students, staff and visitors from physical harm and prevent loss to district property resulting from criminal activity.
