The School Resource Officer (SRO) unit consists of a Sergeant and 5 Police Officers that are assigned to the various schools located within the City of St. Cloud and School District 742. The principle role of the SRO's is to develop and maintain positive relationships with youth. The SRO Program offers a unique opportunity for law enforcement and education to work collaboratively and to enhance the safety of the educational environment. SRO's participate in Summertime By George, Police Athletic League (PAL) and St. Cloud Youth Leadership Academy (SCYLA) activities when school is not in session.
