In the sixth episode of Paul Timm’s podcast – The Changing Face of School Security, he talks with Mo Canady of NASRO about the role of school resource officers:
School security is a complex issue requiring support and guidance from experts. That’s where organizations like the National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO) come in.
School Resource Officers (SROs) are important fixtures in schools. Not only do they aim to create a safe day-to-day school environment, they are also crucial to planning and implementing long-term security measures. They help take this responsibility off the hands of teachers and staff.
Not just anyone can be an SRO, however. The role requires extensive training, knowledge, and commitment to school safety and security.
- NASRO’s mission partnerships and instructional offerings
- Trends that involve and affect school resource officers
