Community Schools Resource Officer is a community -oriented policing program which is a cooperative effort on the partof the Sheriff's Office and the Blackfoot School District to make the officer more available and responsive to the "community" of the school population.  The officer is also there to help prevent problems which detract from the school's primary goal of educating the youth of the community. 

The program has six main objectives:

*  Assistance and support to students and faculty during times of  stress and crisis.  

*   Education of youth regarding the role of laws, courts, and law enforcement      in society.

*   A safe environment for youth in the school with protection from trespassers.

*   Prevention of crime and delinquent behavior in the school.  

*   Investigation of criminal cases involving juveniles and use of  effective     alternatives to charges whenever possible.

The Bingham County Sheriff's Office provides School Resource Officers (SRO's) for most of the school districts in Bingham County.  These officers spend most of their time in the schools in enforcement and preventative roles.   SRO's also assist at sporting events and presentations within the schools.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the SRO program, contact the school district that you reside in.
