School Resource Officer (SRO)
The School Resource Officer makes presentations to groups of students in a classroom setting and in general assemblies. The officer addresses community organizations, home and school clubs, and parent forums. This position with the Los Gatos/Monte Sereno Police Department is a uniquely sensitive assignment requiring patience in working with children, young adults, parents and school administrators. The officer will generally work in uniform and will be expected to interact with school staff and students in a wide range of situations. The officer will be accessible with students at lunch, play games during recess, providing instruction in all grade levels in the classroom, and serve as a positive role model. The SRO position is funded by the police department and both school districts.
