School Resource Officers

The School Resource Officer (SRO) program places a law enforcement officer on school campuses. The SRO program reflects the dedication of both the West Memphis Police Department and the West Memphis School District, ensuring the goal of creating and maintaining a safe, secure, and orderly environment for students, teachers, and staff.

The SROs are able to accomplish this goal through three major components. SROs provide proactive law enforcement duties on their campuses. They educate the students by teaching law related classes and other related subjects in the class room. They counsel both student and parents by aiding them in making the right decisions at school and in their communities. The SROs get further involved in the students’ lives by becoming positive role models.
