A school resource officer (SRO) is a certified law enforcement officer, under SC Code of Law 5-7-12, who is permanently assigned to a school or a set of schools. The SRO is specially trained to perform three roles:
- Law Enforcement
- Law Related Counseling
- Law Related Teaching
The SRO is neither a security guard nor a school employee, but is a law enforcement officer who is present for parents, students, faculty, and staff.
