The COPS Office supports safe schools by providing grant funds to help deploy school resource officers (SROs). Each year, applicants who commit to deploying an SRO under the COPS Hiring Program (CHP) receive additional consideration for funding. Learn more about SROs and all of our projects and resources that support school safety.
The COPS Office recently partnered with the U.S. Department of Education on the development of Safe School-based Enforcement through Collaboration, Understanding, and Respect (SECURe) rubrics. They will assist in properly implementing school resource officers (SROs) so that SRO programs can positively impact the lives of our nation's students. These rubrics offer guidance to communities and law enforcement agencies to help those interested in implementing the most effective SRO programs.
