School Resource Officers

The four School Resource Officers (SRO) are responsible for 30 schools in the city limits of Grand Junction, including elementary, middle, and high schools, public, private, and charter. SROs take an interactive approach with students and staff, not only investigating crime on campus, but also performing classroom presentations, coordinating with school security staff for safety drills, providing security at school events, and acting as a liaison between school administration and the Grand Junction Police Department. SROs promote a positive image of law enforcement to youth in our community, working closely with students and often families to keep children safe and encourage positive choices.
