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 three Elementary schools (Central, Leaksville-Spray, and Douglass).
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).
