The Door County Sheriff’s Office’s Crime Prevention Foundation (CPF) invites the community to help launch the new, countywide School Resource Officer (SRO) Program. An SRO is a career law-enforcement officer with sworn authority who works in a community-oriented policing role within a school. These specially trained and equipped officers work with teachers and administrators to help ensure a safe and productive learning environment.
Sheriff Tammy Sternard, the Door County Sheriff’s Department, the CPF, community partners and all five of Door County’s school districts have partnered to launch a countywide effort in fall 2019. The county and school districts plan to share the personnel costs – the largest line item in the program’s budget – but there are $125,000 in one-time expenses.Contributing to the CPF – a fund of the Door County Community Foundation – will help to cover these one-time expenses to launch the program.
