Mission: The mission of the National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO) is to provide the highest quality of training to school-based law enforcement officers in order to promote safer schools and safer kids. NASRO is an organization for school-based law enforcement officers, school administrators, and school security/safety professionals working as partners to protect students, faculty and staff, and their school community. NASRO, the world’s leader in school-based policing, is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1991 with a solid commitment to our nation’s youth. NASRO was founded on the “triad” concept of school-based policing which is the true and tested strength of the School Resource Officer (SRO) program. The triad concept divides the SRO’s responsibilities into three areas: Educator, Informal Counselor, and Law Enforcement Officer. By training law enforcement to educate, counsel, and protect our school communities, the men and women of NASRO continue to lead by example and promote a positive image of law enforcement to our nation’s youth. SRO programs across the nation are founded as collaborative efforts by police agencies, law enforcement officers, educators, students, parents, and communities. The goal of NASRO and SRO programs is to provide safe learning environments in our nation’s schools, provide valuable resources to school staff, foster a positive relationship with our nation’s youth, and develop strategies to resolve problems affecting our youth with the objective of protecting every child so they can reach their fullest potential. School-based policing is one of the fastest growing area of law enforcement. With thousands of NASRO members around the globe, NASRO takes great pride in being the first and most recognized organization for law enforcement officers assigned in our school communities. NASRO is available to assist communities and schools districts around the world that desire safe schools and successful community partnerships in developing the most effective program for their community.

Last Friday, BCSCPD learned that a local business was giving away yard signs in support of BHS seniors.

We reached out to support social distancing, lend a hand, and hopefully make a few seniors smile in the process.

While we can’t be together, your BCSCPD SROs are still thinking of you and can’t wait to see what comes next for our Bulldogs!

NASRO would like to honor all law enforcement officers and take time to recognize the fallen law enforcement officers. Thank you for your service!

"As a law enforcement officer, my fundamental duty is to serve mankind; to safeguard lives and properties; to protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation, and the peaceful against violence or disorder; and to respect the Constitutional rights of all men to liberty, equality, and justice."

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15th falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.

Since 1972, National School Nurse Day has been set aside to recognize school nurses.

National School Nurse Day was established to foster a better understanding of the role of school nurses in the educational setting.

National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurse Week, which is May 6th - May 12th each year.

School Nurse Day is May 6, 2020.
The National Association of School Nurses chose the theme for this year " School Nurses: Supporting Students in Times of Crisis."

We ask each SRO to share and tag their school nurse to say thank you. #SND2020

Our thoughts and prayers are with all who grieve the passing of school resource officer Robert Kinney.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all who grieve the passing of school resource officer Robert Kinney.

“He always had a smile on his face,” is just one of the many positive and lasting impressions former Hall County Sheriff’s Deputy Robert Kinney made on the men and women of the Sheriff’s Office.

Robby Kinney unexpectedly passed away this week, leaving behind a young family and several communities who loved him dearly.

Kinney served the Hall County Community for just over a decade with the Sheriff’s Office before accepting a position as a School Resource Office in Gwinnett County in July of 2019. Kinney’s career with the Sheriff’s Office began in May of 2009 when he was hired as a Jailer. He graduated from the Police Academy in Nov. of 2011 and officially became a Deputy. He transferred to the Court Services Division in September of 2012.

It was perhaps his next professional move within the agency that most cemented his legacy as a public servant. Kinney became a School Resource Office in Nov. of 2014, serving at both Chestatee Academy (middle school) and East Hall Middle School during his remaining years with the agency.

Major Chris Matthews, commander of the Sheriff’s Office Administrative Bureau, said Kinney was a great employee and friend but so much more.

“I never heard anyone utter a negative word about Robby Kinney. He was a wonderful mentor to the children in our community and had such an amazing love for his own children and wife.”

News of his passing has been difficult and sad for the law enforcement community. His impact on those he served and served alongside is evident. Friendships were maintained and encouragement was offered as Kinney embarked on new career opportunities in Gwinnett County. He was not forgotten at the Sheriff’s Office and never will be.

“It’s difficult to put into perspective the loss of someone so young with so much more to offer the community,” Sheriff Gerald Couch said. “I can only express how thankful I am for the contributions Robby Kinney made to the Sheriff’s Office family and his students. I offer my condolences and ongoing prayers for the Kinney family, who will always be a part of our law enforcement family."

Sro Ramirez daughter got a birthday drive by for her 10th birthday!!
As we are all aware, there are 26 students who currently remain on campus. Some are international students that cannot return home, while others have no safe place to go right now. During this unprecedented time, we can find comfort within our homes, as well as with our nearby family and friends. Our students have just witnessed almost all of their colleagues move out. They are probably feeling somewhat anxious and lonely about being here, as well as concerned about their own family. Bloomsburg University's Terri Meter championed her team to purchase Weis gift cards for each student still living on campus, letting them know that someone is thinking about them. Thank you Terri and all BU PD who assisted her in this effort.
When schools reopen, the supply list will have a good chance of including a mask for students and certainly for all staff. Maybe not a N95, but a mask. And of course, this is based on whether we can provide all the medical providers with their supply first. Far fetched? Never say never. Things change fast. Stay tuned.
Just got a question for the other SROs out there. Do any of your departments have different vehicle markings for your vehicle, or are they marked the same as the rest of the fleet? My department is talking about moving me into a different car, and there is talk about doing a wrap to incorporate the school colors and mascot, as well as labeling school resource officer all over the vehicle. just trying to see what everyone else is doing. This is a take-home car, and with my department, the SRO's work the road when we are not at school.

I'm looking for some information on what kinds of issues your School Admin brings you in on... discipline, mental health issues, or just where they would need Law Enforcement. I'm also looking to hear from SRO's with multiple buildings, how do you split your time?
Deputy and SRO Justin Grogan is a highly respected friend and neighbor in our Ridgeville community, in Moore County, Tennessee. Late Thursday afternoon, one of our elderly residents, who lives alone and is dependent upon her walker, fell in her carport while getting out of her truck. Having previously broken both hips and being physically unstable, she was unable to get up by herself. The temperature was dropping and her life alert button was attached to her walker still inside her truck. Luckily her cell phone was in her pants pocket and she thought to call Justin for assistance, who lives across the street. Thankfully he was home and quickly arrived on the scene. He assessed her, reassured her, gave her time to regain her composure, explained how he was going to pick her up, got her on her feet and safely into the house with patience, kindness, and respect! He truly came to her rescue!!! I took her to the doctor the next day and Justin’s care and kindness were shared several times to all the caregivers we encountered! He is a treasure in our county and in our state! In a day when our law enforcement officers are often vilified, men and women like Justin are going above and beyond and building relationships in their communities and truly being every day heroes and saving lives. Our sweet 85 year old neighbor would not have survived the elements Thursday night, and yes, had Justin not been available she could have called 911, but that would have taken much longer, leaving her in the cold, perhaps leading to complications in her condition. I’m thankful for Justin Grogan and how he cares for people the way that he does! He does not just do his job, but gives so much more of himself to his students, his school, his neighbors, community, and state! He is most deserving of every accolade that comes his way! Moore County can be proud of our HERO!❤️💙
