School Resource Officers

The School Resource Officer (SRO) position was created to develop and foster relationships with the students at RSU 21. The SRO position is an example of community policing at its highest level. The SRO is available to all students and staff at all of the Kennebunk schools. Their presence in the schools has enabled them to get to know the students, as well as continue educating students about the effects that drugs and alcohol can have. SRO's speak with entire classes, as well as individual students on various topics, as well as during parent presentations with regard to State of Maine criminal law and juvenile law, substance abuse, Town of Kennebunk ordinances, and various police department policies and procedures. 

The SRO's handle all complaints that occur in the schools and serve as a reference to students and teachers alike. When not in a classroom, SRO's are in the halls interacting with students and teachers as they pass between classes.
