School Resource Officer (SRO)
As our students prepare for their first few days of school, we are excited to introduce to you our new School Resource Officer, Kent Richards. We are fortunate to benefit from having a School Resource Officer (SRO) in our schools. When given the opportunity, proper training, and support, SROs become important members of our school communities. School Resource Officers often become trusted mentors, role models for students and support for staff. The table below clearly outlines what an SRO is and is not.
School Resource Officer Richards will be seen in and around our schools throughout the school year. Having an SRO in our schools supports our Towns community-oriented policing philosophy while also increasing collaboration between both town police departments and our schools. We are very appreciative and excited to work with both the Hamilton and Wenham Police Departments to ensure successful implementation of this program.
Meet our SRO Kent Richards.
