School Resource Officers

Brandon Police Service has two School Resource Officers, one for the high school student population, and one for the elementary and middle years school children. The school liaison officers combine education, crime prevention, counselling, and community relations to meet the diverse needs of residents in the Brandon school community. The School Liaison Officers provide services such as:

  • School presentations
  • School patrol training and maintenance
  • Youth Organization presentations
  • Adopt-A-Cop Program
  • Join the Team Program with the Wheat Kings
  • Handling complaints from the schools of a criminal nature

 

In doing this the School Resource Officers hope to reach goals such as promoting the police as an accessible community service, elimination of barriers between youth and police, and prevent crime while enhancing community safety through education.

School Resource Officers play a crucial role in developing positive relationships with youth in the school environment. These relationships are developed both informally and formally through classroom presentations on various topics as well as visits made to the school.
