The Moscow Police Department, in partnership with the Moscow School District, jointly funds the position of School Resource Officer. Officer Jason Summers is the School Resource Officer for the department.
The mission of our School Resources Officer (SRO) is to work in conjunction with local elementary, secondary schools and other service agencies to provide a positive and safe environment for our students to learn and socialize. Their focus is on community interests within the school system. The officer, while in school, is involved in a variety of functions aimed at prevention. They are a resource for students, parents, teachers and administration regarding criminal justice issues.
Another duty for the SRO is providing a link with local agencies which provide preventive and counseling services within the school district. Working hand-in-hand with the principal in each school, the SRO assists with finding solutions to problems affecting school-aged children.
The SRO also oversees one of the community's favorite community policing events--the Citizens Police Academy.
