School Resource Officer Program


The South Carolina Department of Public Safety (SCDPS) is charged with the responsibility of the administration of state funds to be utilized by the department for the purpose of hiring certified law enforcement officers to serve as a school resource officer (SRO) for school districts that otherwise would lack the adequate resources to hire their own SROs. The SCDPS Office of Highway Safety and Justice Programs (OHSJP) serves as the division that directly administers the SRO Program.
