The deputies begin as school resource officers by attending a 40-hour basic training offered by the National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO). After the training the deputies are assigned at the schools. They have offices in the school and report there daily. Their duties consist of:
Assisting school administration in handling student issues
Handling school problems, which would normally require a deputy to respond
Teaching various classes involving problem solving and law enforcement issues
The response to the program has been excellent from students, school employees and parents.
