Additional school resource officers in New Fairfield CT
The New Fairfield school system currently has one School Resource Officer (SRO), who divides his time between 4 schools. We are requesting an additional School Resource Officer to support the New Fairfield Schools.
This officer will have special training:
·to offer counseling on topics such as suicide prevention and early recognition of antisocial behaviors
·will have enforcement power to address behavioral or safety issues in the schools,
·and will bring educational programs such as internet-safety, fraud prevention, drug education, and prevention of cyber bullying to the entire community.
Most importantly this officer will be a resource to the teachers so they can focus their efforts on education. During non-school hours/Summer months, this officer will serve as an additional police resource for the town.
Please sign our petition to add at least one additional officer. Everyindividualcounts so please share this with your NF friends and families.
Thank you for your participation and support!!!
