School Resource Officers
Douglas County Sheriff School Resource Officers provide law enforcement to eight high schools, five middle schools, four charter schools, and thirty-five elementary schools. We’re committed to keeping your students safe and secure in their learning environment.
School Resource Officers investigate events on and off campus, gather information about school security, and work with other law enforcement agencies to keep current with school trends.
Students face different challenges and pressures today than their parents; predators luring them over the internet; new, stronger drugs; sexting on cell phones.
Here are some of the current trends among young adults:
- Vaping (tobacco and marijuana)
- Alcohol and drugs
- Suicidal thoughts
- Sexting and Internet threats
There are many resources to help you and your child face those pressures.
No matter what issue your family is facing, the Juvenile Assessment Center can help. For no cost, specialists will assess what’s going on with your son or daughter and recommend services to help. Call the JAC 24/7 at 720-874-3381.

Each of our SROs has completed School Resource Officer training sponsored by the National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO). They also attend periodic refresher training sponsored by the Colorado Association of School Resource Officers (CASRO), both locally and nationally, to ensure that we remain on the cutting edge of this vital community service.
