School resource officers (SROs) are assigned to high schools and middle schools in unincorporated Jefferson County.
SROs work with school administrators to enhance overall campus safety. They take crime reports, investigate crimes in the schools and provide safety-based education as part of school curriculum. Resource officers also teach educational safety on topics that may include bullying, drugs/alcohol, driver safety and the Safe2Tell program.
Some school resource officers teach Alive at 25, a Colorado State Patrol program that reinforces safe driving habits for young people.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office does not have a "scared straight" program. If your child is enrolled in a Jefferson County school, and you believe he or she is making bad or unsafe decisions, contact your child's school resource officer. The deputy may be able to meet with your child and provide guidance, or shed light on the possible consequences of bad choices.
Another resource for families is the Juvenile Assessment Center.
