Our School Resource Officer program was started in 2008. This unit is comprised of 33 school resource officers. All of these officers have attended specialized training to deal with issues that may arise within their respective schools. Our School Resource Officers are highly dedicated to the safety of teachers and students of Desoto County. Along with ensuring the safety of our schools, these officers are able to develop relationships with the students at their schools. Our SRO's have received numerous cards, thank you notes, and even awards for the impact they have had on students.
