Sioux County Sheriff’s Office hosts Basic School Resource Officer (SRO) training – August 8-12

The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office recently hosted a National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO) Basic School Resource Officer training course. This training took place August 8 – 12, 2022.

The National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO,) the world’s leader in school-based policing, is dedicated to making schools and children safer by providing the highest quality training to school-based law enforcement officers. The sheriff’s office was excited to welcome NASRO as well as School Resource Officers from across the country to Sioux County, Iowa.

A special thanks to the Sioux Center Community School District for partnering with us in providing the training venue at their brand new, state of the art high school.

Here is the Basic SRO course description from NASRO:

The NASRO Basic School Resource Officer Course is a forty-hour (40) block of instruction designed for law enforcement officers and school safety professionals working in an educational environment and with school administrators. The course provides tools for officers to build positive relationships with both students and staff. The course is also beneficial for educational professionals dedicated to providing a safe learning environment and provides a more in-depth understanding of the role and functions of an SRO.
