School Resource Officers
Lakota currently has school resource officers serving each of our campuses.
These are uniformed law enforcement officers, either deputies from the Butler County Sheriff’s Office or police officers from the West Chester Twp. Police Dept. They serve all Lakota schools.
Students and parents may report concerns confidentially by contacting their School Resource Officer (SRO).
What is the role of a School Resource Officer?
The primary responsibility of our SROs is the safety and security of Lakota students and staff. They patrol the school and manage ongoing programs for school safety include lockdown drills and monthly fire and tornado drills. They serve as a support resource for staff members and often work closely with the school counselor for in-class guided lessons regarding day-to-day safety of our students, including situations at school, at home, and with technology. One of the most important roles of our SROs is to build positive relationships at the school, so that students and staff feel comfortable approaching SROs should a problem arise.
