School Resource Officer, MDS R.L. Settle
The Commonwealth of Virginia is committed to providing safe schools where students can learn and teachers can teach. The proactive and effective School Resource Officer Program is one component of the partnership that commits public safety personnel to the safety and security of the school community. The central mission of the law enforcement–educator partnership is student success. When students succeed, the entire community succeeds. Student success contributes to community safety: students who experience success and make positive contributions within their schools become productive citizens in the larger community.
