City of Medford Oregon / Police / About the Medford Police Department / MADGE Task Force / School Resource Officers (SRO)

School Resource Officers (SRO)

The Medford Police Department School Resource Officer program was created in 1996 in partnership with Medford School District 549c.  The program started with one part-time officer.  Since that time, the program has grown to include: 3 full-time School Resource Officers and 2 full-time Community Service Officers.

 

School Resource Officers and Community Service Officers are assigned to North, Central and South High Schools as well as McLoughlin and Hedrick Middle Schools.  In addition, the officers handle cases that occur at or involve students at the other public schools located inside the city.

 

The purpose of the program is to increase safety within the schools and promote a positive environment where education can occur.

 

Officers receive specialized training in how to communicate and deal with juveniles in the school setting.  In addition, officers teach classes to students, staff and parents regarding the criminal justice system, drug and alcohol issues, gangs, driving and internet safety.

 

The Community Service Officers are assigned to work with the students and staff concerning neighborhood nuisance issues that occur on campus and the within the neighborhoods surrounding the schools.

 

During the summer months, the officers are assigned to the Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement Team (MADGE) and focus on juvenile gang enforcement in our community.

 

The School Resource Officers and Community Service Officers are available to speak to parents, concerned citizens and groups concerning a variety of topics affecting youth in our city.  Please feel free to contact them with questions and/or concerns.
