School Resource Officer

City of Eden Police Department School Resource Officers are certified law enforcement officers that are assigned to schools within our city. The SRO is specifically trained and performs three roles: law enforcement officer; law-related counselor; and law-related education teacher.

The City of Eden Police Department currently has three School Resource Officers; one SRO is assigned full time at Morehead High School, one SRO is assigned at Holmes Junior High School, and one SRO rotates between our four Elementary schools (Central, Leaksville-Spray, Douglass, and Draper).

Programs that our SROs are involved in include D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education), G.R.E.A.T. (Gang Resistance Education and Training), and EKG (Educating Kids Against Gun Violence).
