The Rutland County Sheriff's Department, through contracts, has been able to create and institute the use of School Resource Officers within our local community. The SRO concept is designed to allow law enforcement officers, school administrators and safety/security personnel to work as partners to protect students, faculty and staff while in attendance.

Through a collaborative effort by our Deputies, teachers, parents, students and the community, SRO's are able to offer educational programs that'll help reduce violence, drug abuse and crime -- offering a safe learning environment for students and foster better community relations.

Currently, the Rutland County Sheriff's Department provides SRO services to multiple towns.
