The Kentucky Center for School Safety, in collaboration with the Kentucky Association of School Resource Officers, has designated three school districts as a Kentucky SRO Promising Program.

The two organizations asked school districts to submit details about their school resource officer (SRO) programs and judged the submissions based on how the district and local community collaborate with SROs to promote safe and secure learning environments.

“SROs are part of the fiber of a school community. They serve as mentors, teachers and protectors of our students.” said Jon Akers, executive director of the Kentucky Center for School Safety.

The three 2023 Kentucky SRO Promising Programs are:

  • Anderson County Schools
  • Hardin County Schools
  • McCracken County Schools

Each district receives $1,000 as part of the Kentucky SRO Promising Program designation.
