The School Resource Officer (SRO) is a sworn deputy in the Kent County Sheriff's Office whose primary function is to assure a safe and secure learning environment for students, faculty and administrators at Kent County High School and Kent County Middle School. The SRO serves as a law enforcement officer and liaison between the Kent County Sheriff’s Office and students, parents, teachers and administrators at both schools. Our SROs attend several weeks of training for different school-based situations. SROs are based at the schools.
