School Resource Officer

A School Resource Officer is defined as the following:
A certified law enforcement officer who is permanently assigned to provide coverage to a school or a set of schools. The SRO is specifically trained to perform three roles: law enforcement officer, law-related counselor, and law-related education teacher.

The Asheboro Police Department currently employs four SROs. Two are assigned to the high school and one each to the middle schools. They can be reached by telephone by calling the main offices of each school, or through the police department at (336) 626-1300.
Our Department is fortunate to have four professional officers in our SRO program.

TIPS for Students:
    • Keep all of your valuables LOCKED in your locker

    • Don’t carry excessive amounts of money on campus

    • Report all violations of law to SRO or School Administration

    • SAMS Crimestoppers will pay cash for tips on criminal offenses (Students can remain anonymous)

Keeping our children safe has always been a priority for the Asheboro Police Department. The School Resource Officer program was developed to keep our schools safe, for the students, for the parents, for us all. If you have any questions about our SRO program please call Master Sergeant T. S. Maness with Asheboro Police Department at 336-626-1300 ext. 320.
