The SRO Program is not a response to increased crime, drugs, or violence in the schools. It is a program designed to help maintain the excellent standards of education and safety already in place.
Focus on Safety is designed to address the kinds of issues, pressures, and challenges that students face daily. Over 9 weeks, students learn about building self-esteem, internet safety, weapons safety, and drug and gang resistance.
As a school-based program, it is aimed at reducing incidents of delinquency, drug and alcohol abuse, violence, bullying, peer pressure, vandalism, and other issues which tend to occur in a school environment.
