School Resource Officer Program

Overview

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.

The SFY 22-23 State-Funded School Resource Officer Program solicitation is closed. Awards for the period of July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023 were forwarded to the applicants prior to the start of the award period.

The SFY 23-24 State-Funded School Resource Officer Program solicitation and related information is tentatively set to be posted in January/February of 2023.
