At the Hampton County Sheriff’s Office, our School Resource Officers (SROs) play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and well-being of students, faculty, and staff within our community's schools. Our dedicated SROs are carefully selected and trained law enforcement officers who are committed to building positive relationships with students while providing a safe and secure learning environment.
Our SROs are responsible for fostering a positive and trusting relationship between law enforcement and the school community. They serve as mentors, educators, and liaisons between the school administration, students, and parents. SROs are trained to handle a wide range of situations, from addressing safety concerns to educating students about the importance of making responsible choices.
In addition to maintaining a visible presence on school campuses, our SROs work closely with school administrators to develop and implement safety and emergency response plans. They also provide educational programs on topics such as drug prevention, cyber safety, and conflict resolution, empowering students to make informed decisions and stay safe both in and out of school.
The Hampton County Sheriff’s Office is committed to the well-being of our youth and the entire school community. Our School Resource Officers embody this commitment by promoting a positive and supportive environment where students can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.
