School Resource

 

The School Resource division of the Burke County Sheriff's Office consists of a Lieutenant  and ten school resource officers. Each deputy has an office located within the respective schools to which they are assigned.

 

 

School Resource Officers (SRO's) are assigned within the middle and high schools to help create and maintain a safe, secure, and orderly environment. SRO's are also there to interact with students and to help build a rapport between students and law enforcement. They also provide law enforcement related advise to school staff, students and the community. SRO's will investigate all incidents or complaints of criminal activity or unlawful misconduct. They take the appropriate law enforcement action if necessary and will pursue criminal charges or court actions if the situation warrants.
