Series description

School Resource Officers (SROs) are present in many communities across the country. SROs must be youth advocates, educators, and protectors of all students in the schools they serve. This video series helps SROs consider the way students think, how to connect with them, how to break down barriers to communication, and how to become a successful presence in their school.

The SRO video series is produced in partnership with Katherine Schweit, JD at Schweit Consulting and Rocket Media Group.
