The goal of the training is to ensure the safety of students, faculty, and staff. The School Resource Officer Program provides full-time, on-site police services to all of the Orange County Public Schools in middle and high schools within city limits.
“The Orlando Police Department is committed to keeping our city safe,” OPD posted.
OPD also has a SuperKids program, which has specially trained officers providing curriculum to elementary school students.
According to the city, the officers working in high schools and middle schools have created and implemented a progressive and innovative program called Responsibility Matters. Responsibility Matters focuses on personal responsibility, recognizing a bad situation and making the right choices. It begins with students understanding that responsibility to their family, school and community starts with themselves.
