The Polk County Sheriff’s Office places School Resource Officers (SROs) within the educational environment. SROs assist school administration with problems that arise on campus that may involve students, parents, teachers or school visitors. SROs provide a law enforcement presence in our schools and investigate reports of criminal activity that occur on school property.
