School Resource Officer (SRO) Survey

  • Please complete our SRO Survey to help us better understand the role that Allied Universal Bike Patrol Officers and School Resource Officers (SROs) should play in keeping our schools safe and welcoming for students, staff, and visitors. You have until Friday, October 23 at 5:00 p.m. to complete and submit the survey. Thank you if you have already completed the survey.

    There are four versions of the survey. Please select the survey designated for your role: 

    1. Students at a middle or high school with a SRO and/or a Bike Patrol Officer should use the link sent to their school email address.
    2. Staff at an elementary, middle, or high school with a SRO and/or a Bike Patrol Officer should use the link sent to their work email address.
    3. Parents at an elementary, middle, or high school with a SRO and/or a Bike Patrol Officer should use the link sent through School Messenger.
    4. Community members, including students, staff, or parents at schools that do not have a SRO and/or a Bike Patrol Officer should use complete this survey.

    In the coming months, we will also be conducting focus groups throughout the county to gather additional information on these topics and hear directly from students, staff, parents, and members of the community.

    From the survey: 

    A “School Resource Officer (SRO)” is a law enforcement officer working for a police department who is assigned to a WCPSS campus; however, the SRO is not an employee of WCPSS.

    A “Bike Patrol Officer” is a private contractor who is not a law enforcement officer.  A Bike Patrol Officer is primarily responsible for security measures that do not involve students or staff at their assigned location, rather to observe and report issues to school administration. These positions are the “yellow shirt” security officers often seen on bicycles and foot patrolling the schools.  Like SROs, Bike Patrol Officers are also not WCPSS employees. 

    We appreciate your participation in this survey.
