School Resource Officer (SRO) Program  


Stewart County Schools SRO Program is a partnership between the school system and the Stewart County Sheriff's Office to protect the scholars, staff, and visitors on the Stewart County Educational Complex. The Sheriff’s Deputies work in collaboration with educators, scholars, parents, and the community to reduce crime, drug abuse, violence, and to provide a safe and caring school learning environment. These Sheriff's Deputies provide direct service to our schools which includes campus safety inspections, classroom presentations, school investigations, and scholar and parent conferences. The SRO serves as a counselor, role model, and advocate for scholars, families, faculty, and staff.


How do School Resource Officers Provide a Safe School Environment?


  • Patrol school grounds, respond to calls for service in the area, and participate in juvenile enforcement missions to prevent juvenile delinquency.
  • Provide guidance on ethical issues in a classroom setting or informal settings.
  • Provide individual counseling and mentoring to scholars.
  • Give classroom presentations on the work of the SRO, the criminal justice system, and other related topics that help to build an understanding of law enforcement's role in the community.
  • Provide security for all school related events.
