SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER NETWORK
School administrators and SROs strive to provide an educational environment centered around student learning and safety. In their dual roles, SROs serve school districts and the greater community. SROs have the challenge of balancing competing interests because they may be called to serve in a law enforcement or SRO capacity during the school day. As a SRO, their focus is also on providing redirection and guidance, and engaging in educational and relationship building activities.
DOJ and DPI strongly suggest that school staff (such as administrators, teachers, and pupil service staff) and SROs should receive high quality training opportunities to increase their level of competency. To the extent possible, collaborative training is encouraged and efforts should be made to ensure training is a supplement to any training that the SROs regularly take part in.
Live Vape Free
One in five Wisconsin high school students currently uses e-cigarettes, and 40% of Wisconsin high school students who use tobacco products want to quit. Live Vape Free, funded by the Wisconsin Tobacco Prevention and Control Program, gives teens the support they need to quit e-cigarettes for good. It is an online course to learn about warning signs of youth use, and get tips for talking to youth about e-cigarettes. Adults can enroll in the course at www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/vapefree
Please consider sharing this information on Live Vape Free with the middle and high schools in your district. Flyers can be printed and displayed in hallways, offices, or wherever teens or school staff/visitors will see them.
