Sheriff Langley: School Resource Officers

The Sheriff’s Office is dedicated to the School Resource Officer (SRO) Program and continues to work with the County Executive and the Legislators to maintain the SRO Program. It is the position of the Sheriff’s Office to put the safety of our community first. Our resource officers are an instrumental asset to the community and provide a direct connection between the children and staff in our schools and law enforcement creating a safer environment for our children throughout the school districts. The students and staff know that they can always confide in the resource officers should they ever have concerns about anything. I would like to remind everyone- if they hear something or see something say something. Never dismiss what our children and others are saying to us no matter how insignificant one may think it to be.
