The Kenton County Police provides school resource officers (SROs) to schools in the unincorporated areas of the county. The program is a partnership between the Kenton County Police and the Kenton County School Board. The role of an SRO is to provide safety and security to our children and school staff so they can focus on learning. This is done through deterrence by their presence, educating staff, and ensuring the physical security of the school buildings.
We also believe the SRO can serve as a resource in providing another connection between our agency and the community we serve. An SRO does not serve as a disciplinarian in regards to violations of school rules or minor transgressions. The decision to discipline and the discipline itself is handled by school staff.
