Local School Resource Officer’s are sworn Police Officers employed by the Green River Police Department, who attend regular training relating to School Resource Officers. One of our School Resource Officers is a certified drug recognition expert (DRE) which helps them recognize drug use legal/illegal in the schools. They are both members of the State SRO Organization as well as the Wyoming School Resource Officer Association, AKA “WYSROA”.
“Rachels Challenge” was presented to all middle/ high school students in the spring of 2011 and they are working to get that program into the school system in Green River.
The Green River Police Department and the Sweetwater County School District II work together to provide two SRO’s in our schools. The SRO’s are housed in the listed schools, but visit each school in the city on a regular basis and are familiar with the staffs in each school and many of the students.
The Green River Police Department and the School District strive to provide a safe, secure environment for the teachers to teach in and the students to learn in. They work with students, faculties, parents and administrators to immediately address and resolve problems, and to establish and promote a positive relationship between the youth, the schools and the police.
They provide in classroom and out of classroom instruction on a variety of topics for students, facilities, and parents to achieve those goals.
They conduct investigations of crimes that occur on school property and enforce local and state laws.
They interact with students during/after school hours at school sponsored events.
The SRO Program operates on limited funds and relies on local business donations to be able to implement the programs for the students. Some of those programs include:
Camp POSTCARD—Volunteers of America www.VOANR.org
Texting and Driving
