Crime Prevention Foundation Launches Resource Officer Program

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.
