Yesterday morning, the Edmonton Police Service School Resource Officer Unit (SRO) was recognized by the City for being awarded the Model Agency of the Year Award by the National Association of School Resource Officers. This is the first time a Canadian agency has been recognized.
Edmonton’s SROs were recognized for not only their specialized training, but for their strong relationships in the community. Model Agency Awards are presented to Agencies that exemplify the National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO) Triad Concept, trainings, policies and standards. These practices ensure professional service to the school community.
Superintendent Darrel Robertson joined Mayor Don Iveson, City Councillors, Chief Rod Knecht, Sgt. Kelly Rosnau, Sgt. Ray Wood and other guests to honour members of the SRO units from Edmonton Public Schools and Edmonton Catholic Schools at City Hall. Also representing the District was Carol Symons, Director of District Support Services, who liaises with District SROs.
The District is proud to stand as partners with the Edmonton Police Service to recognize the 13 officers who work in our high schools.
