School Resource Officers

School Resource Officers

School Resource Officer’s (SRO’S) help our school’s have a safe atmosphere so our children can put forth all their effort into gaining a valuable education. Their jobs are to provide a safe atmosphere for the students, teachers, and all visitors on school property. SRO’s have many responsibilities including being a law enforcement officer, instructor, role model, and mediator.

They provide a visible law enforcement presence on campus to deter, prevent, and respond to crime.  Daily they monitor morning and afternoon school zones to ensure the children have a safe arrival and departure from school. Also, they help maintain the safety for players, students, and fans at sporting events.

SRO’s also serve as a guest classroom instructor teaching classes such as gun safety and  bus safety and whatever is relevant to the age groups that they will be instructing.

SRO’s also serve as a role model to help the children learn the importance of growing up to become good citizens. SRO’s must possess a high level of integrity and character and constantly show professionalism to the students.

Another responsibility of a SRO’s is to serve as a mediator to help resolve any issues the students face.

The SRO’s attend a 40 hour specialized training school to become a certified school resource officer where they learn many valuable tools to make them more effective at their job. Each SRO also attends 40 hours of in-service training each year to maintain the certification as a as a state certified peace officer. When school is not in session the SRO’s also work on the road as patrol deputies.

Lieutenant Michael Bredwell has been with the Meigs County Sheriff’s Office since 1998. He currently serves as full time school resource officer for Meigs North Elementary. Along with the SRO duties, Michael supervises all patrol deputies and is responsible for their scheduling.
