School Resource Officer (SRO)

The Portage Township Schools' SRO program has been designed to serve several important purposes including:keeping the schools safe, building interaction with the students in a setting that promotes self esteem and trust, interacting with students, faculty, community, and parents to promote positive relations, and educating students about the law and the importance of individual responsibility, while reinforcing the idea that police are role models.
 
The success of the program depends on the confidence and respect earned from students, parents, and staff, and the interaction which takes place between everyone involved.  Feel free to contact us or one of our onsite Juvenile Probation Officers if you have any questions.
