The School Resource Officer (SRO) is another example of the Travis County Sheriff’s Offices (TCSO) approach to Community Oriented Policing.The SRO Unit is made up of a sergeant and senior deputy who are specially trained to work in a school setting. They have over 50 years of combined corrections and law enforcement experience, with each having worked in various positions in the Sheriff's Office prior to being accepted in to the SRO Unit.
The SRO works in collaboration with their campus parents/guardians, administration, faculty and staff to provide a safe learning environment, law related education, counseling, mentorship and expertise of a trained law enforcement officer at their school.
To provide a safe and secure environment to the schools we service, while building positive relationships between the school, students/families and the law enforcement community.

Working in Partnerships with Schools.
As a School Resource Officer, there are four areas they focus on while working in a school setting. They are: law enforcement, teacher, counselor and mentor.
The SRO's primary duty is to be a visible law enforcement presence on campus to deter, prevent and respond to crime.
