School Resource Officers (SRO) & Security Officers
GPS has SRO’s assigned to all of our High Schools and Jr High Schools. The United States Department of Justice defines School Resource Officers (SROs) as "sworn law enforcement officers responsible for safety and crime prevention in schools". SROs are typically employed by a local police or sheriff's agency and work closely with administrators in an effort to create a safer environment for both students and staff.
The responsibilities of SROs are similar to regular police officers in that they have the ability to make arrests, respond to calls for service, and document incidents. SROs typically have additional duties, including mentoring and conducting presentations on youth-related issues.
GPS has Security Officers assigned at all of our High School and Jr High School campuses. They are all uniformed in bright uniforms for easy identification. They are a wealth of information and are in place to aid as mentors and to aid our SROs in keeping the campus safe.
